WITH each succeeding- edition of " Bones, Molars and Briefs," the work attendant upon its publication 
is materially increased. After their election, the present Board of Editors found themselves confronted 
with a "condition and not a theory." They willingly shouldered the responsibility, upon the assurance 
of their friends that artistic, literary and financial assistance would at all times be forthcoming. Some of our 
friends, long on promises, but short on the fulfillment, seem to have forgotten us, and we applied in vain for writs 
of specific performance, and mandamus would not lie, (even where we had to). 

It has been our aim to gather only those happenings of our College life, that will ever awaken the pleasantest 
memories of the past, and in future years, when cares and responsibilites have furrowed your brow and left their 
silver threads among your rapidly thinning locks, if these few pages should serve as the connecting link between the 
future and the happy past, then will our mission have been fulfilled. 

This volume (in size at least) is not intended as a model of literary skill, [the Editors think it best to state 
this and avoid delusions] but rather a record of your many victories and few defeats in the field of Athletics, 
Medicine, Dentistry and Law, together with a few of the accidents and incidents, that can not well be divorced from 
the pleasures and struggles peculiar to these few years of our lives as under-grads at " Old Maryland." 

It has been the aim of your Board to do the best it could under existing circumstances. If you are satisfied, 
you are, if you will excuse the expression, " dead easy; " if you are not, you share the satisfaction of having 
much company.

Baseball Team, 1899-1900. 


Manager, W. H. Houston. 

O MARA LAND'S baseball teams are ascribed many glorious victories. Although 
an old University, Maryland is comparatively young in athletics, only having had 
a baseball team for the past four years. Within that time " we have not let the 
grass grow under our feet," but have made wonderful strides on the diamond and a record 
that may be pointed to with pride. Having started with the minor colleges of our State, we 
now successfully compete with the leading Universities of the country. Maryland has proven 
herself to be the leading baseball college in the State, having lost only two games in four 
years ; a brilliant record, considering the fact that we had no team prior to this time. 

This year, as last, we have competed with the best colleges in the country and have 
won a fair share of victories, even, though, all but two games were played on foreign soil. 
These two home games were both won by Maryland. 

Maryland has always been successful in baseball, and this year is no exception. Suc- 
cess in baseball is much more difficult for us to achieve than anyone not closely associated 
with us would suppose. We invariably commence the season under trying circumstances and 
greatly handicapped. The latter part of March and first of April is the usual time for practice 
and preparatory measures, prior to entering into annual competition. Now, it so happens that 
this is also the time when our final examinations are held, and, consequently, we have very 
little time for practice. Then, again, when the " exams " are over and the actual baseball season has begun, we find ourselves 
in another dilemma ; a large number of the boys, through with the " exams," bid farewell to the old University and wend 
their way homeward. This, of course, takes away from us much baseball material and talent from which to seclet a team. 
But never daunted nor discouraged, we have thus far pulled together, and b^ dint of hard work and earnestness overridden 
all obstacles and put upon the field a team that should ever be a credit and pride to old Maryland. 


**■• ".-?-';, 

Our first sally was to the South, where we made our presence very much felt by winning six games out of eight played. 
One of the two games lost may be, more or less, attributed to the fact that three of our men were left at Richmond, and, of 
course, could not participate in the games. 

The University of North Carolina was the team we had our hearts set on scalping ; well, we got their scalps and 
brought them home dangling from our belts, thanks to the "benders " and "shoots" belonging to the collection of Messrs. 
Minor and Brooks, for it took two pitchers to down our worthy " tar-heel " opponents. It was a hard fought and well-earned 
victory. It was nip and tuck to the last inning, in which we scored the winning run, after two hands were out. Score, 
Maryland 6, North Carolina 5. 

Our northern trip was not quite so successful, and, although we lost three games and won only one, we proved 
ourselves hard problems to solve. Each game was well contested, one of which (with Fordham) it took ten innings to decide. 

It must be remembered all these games were played on foreign soil, which all those interested in baseball know is a 
considerable handicap. 

At home we played only one game, that with the University of West Virginia, which we won to the tune of nineteen to 
six, a decisive victory. 

The most noteworthy feature of this year's work, was the fact that we clearly demonstrated our ability to cope with the 
leading colleges of the country. 

As to the individnal playing of our team, Alexander, probably, did the best all-around work ; he led the team in stolen 
bases, was second in the batting average, second in fielding and second in run getting. 

Captain M. Whitehurst led in fielding, and H. Whitehurst in run getting. Brooks was our mainstay in the box and 
led the batting in that department. W. H. Smith's strong point was in reaching first base, which, as the boys say, " he would 
do on the least provocation." He did this trick more than any other man on the team, he seemed to have a fondness for 
being hit with the ball. 

Much credit is due to our energetic manager, Mr. W. H. Houston, who arranged, very probably, the best schedule this 
University has ever known.

A CALL for candidates for the Track Team of the University of Maryland, made last Spring by the Manager, Mr. Thos. 
S. Rice, brought forth quite a number of aspirants for positions ; and, after careful training, the men, as chosen by 
Captain Armstrong to represent the Varsity at the Relay Races at the University of Pennsylvania, and the positions in 
which they ran, are as follows : 

Charles E. McPhail, . 
Frank M. Widner, Jr., 
J. R. Sherbert, 
Wm. R. Armstrong, 
John Miller, 

First Quarter. 

Second Quarter. 

Third Quarter. 

Fourth Quarter. 


On account of Sherbert's refusal to run, Miller was put in to run the third quarter. 

The team left Mount Royal Station on the morning of April 30th, 1899, and arrived in Philadelphia in time to partake 
of lunch, such as men in training should eat; and journeyed thence to Franklin Field, where they donned their suits to be in 
readiness to answer when they should be called. 

The description of the race was fully given in an article in one of the papers, from the pen of Mr. Rice, which read 
thusly : 

Johns Hopkins won the race with the University of Maryland, as was expected, but things might have been more 
exciting if Sherbert, of the Maryland team, had not quit just before he was called to go on the track. 

He claims he had a cramp in his leg, but as he was not bothered with it after the race started, his actions were 
decidedly suspicious, especially, since he threw the team down in the same way at the 1896 games, and has been accused, on 
strong grounds, of acting in the same unsportsmanlike manner on other occasions. 

Sherbert's miserable quitting necessitated the running of Miller, who, while he did his best, was in no condition for 
such a race. 

It also took the heart out of the men, as they counted on the quitter to make up any lost ground. McPhail stuck close 
enough to Clark and Widner to Riggs, but Knapp easily pulled away from Miller in the third, leaving him a long way behind, 
and Armstrong was unable to make up the distance against Mullin. 


After the races the teams were banqueted at Houston Hall, which foims a part of the University of Pennsylvania, and 
every one had a royal time. The Man-land men were taken in. charge by Mr. Stewart of the Class of 1899. 

At the election of officers for the track team for this season, Mr. Edwin R. Stringer, 1900, was elected Manager, and 
Mr. Charles E. McPhail, of the same class, Captain. 

We lose several of our men this year through graduation and other causes, but we hope to overcome this difficulty by 
developing new men who have signified their intention of coming out and trying for the team. 

There will be no one entered in any of the indoor games this Winter, but we will devote all our attention to the relay 
races in the Spring, and expect to turn out the fastest relay team in the State.

In reviewing such a magnificent past as that of Kappa Sigma, one, with the present limited space, is forced to be 
rather meagre of details however interesting they maybe. The period through which the maternal society has flourished 
extends over five hundred years, years which have witnessed Europe enter into the great furnace and come out cast in a new 
mould. The Order was originally founded at the Universities of Bologna and Florence, by Emanuel Chrysaloras and Lorenzo 
de Medici, in the year 1400, and its birthplace was a fitting one, Bologna, the City of Letters. 

There, when the darkness of the middle ages was beginning to recede from Europe, some of the greatest names in 
history were enrolled upon the roster of the Order, and some of the most civilizing influences emanated from within its pale. 
On down through the centuries it so made its impress on fraternity history, that, when in the year 1867, several of the 
members sought to organize the first chapter in America, they found a fruitful ground ready for the work. So the American 
branch was organized under the name of Kappa Sigma, at the Universities of Virginia and Alabama, and soon attained to 
prominence in the American Greek-letter world. 

The Fraternity prospered until the width and breadth of the United States knew the fame of Kappa Sigma, and to day 
over half a hundred chapters exist under the name, acknowledging allegiance to the central body, many of whose members 
are adding their names to the already long list of those Kappa Sigmas who have arisen to eminence in their various sections 
and ages of the world. Although the Fraternity has a general representation over the United States, it is primarily a Southern 
fraternity, and has prospered the more in the home of American chivalry, where it was first transplanted into the new world. 
Since that time the strides taken yearly have been so remarkable, that; at the present day, the appreciable result, as above 
chronicled, has rewarded the efforts of the original members at the Universities of Virginia and Alabama. 

The present chapter at the University of Maryland was granted a charter in 1891, and during the intervening sessions 
of the University, over forty members have been admitted to the Alpha Alpha Chapter; now the chapter is flourishing in a 
gratifying manner and is well on the way to getting into a chapter house of its own, while it has already taken its place as one 
of the foremost of the Greek-letter societies in Baltimore, and, consequently, in Maryland. Throughout the crucial period of 
the early life of the chapter the members have shown themselves in their true worth and have worked hard until the present 
members find the comfortable state of affairs just now the accomplished result of the continued effort.

Phi Kappa Sigma National Hymn. 


Rise, Phi Kaps, Pledge with me 
Our dear Fraternity, 

Our Hope and Pride ; 
May Fortune smile on her, 
May nought dishonor her, 
May God environ her, 

And be her guide. 

Ours are the ties that bind 
Hearts, soul and mind to mind, 

And men to men ; 
Stand we in unity. 
And with hearts glad and free, 
Phi Kappa Sigma — Thee, 
We pledge again. 

Now may our future be 
Like our past history, 

Though greater far ; 
And our Fraternity, 
Crowned by posterity, 
Will in the heavens be 

The brightest star. 


Rise, Phi Kaps, hand in hand, 
In the old hall we stand, 

As oft before ; 
But though we part, the past 
Clings to our memory fast. 
And with our love shall last 

Forever more.

At the beginning of the present scholastic year our active members numbered but twelve, but it was not long before 
we began to get recruits, who, as they came before our august assembly, were duly initiated into the mysteries, taught to 
handle and care for the "goat," and last, but in no manner least, they were seated at our banquet table to partake of a 
sumptuous feast, such as only a " Frat " chef is competent to prepare. This feature was added only this year and has been 
greatly enjoyed by all. 

Our Chapter is now seven years old, and we can safely say that it is in better condition than ever, and its future is 
promising indeed. We have the honor of being the first Greek-letter chapter established in the University, and aim not only 
to promote a fraternal spirit, but to be mutually beneficial in our college work. 

A part of each meeting is devoted to reading and discussion of Dental topics, thereby fitting our members for similar 
work when they shall have completed their course and taken their place among their cotemporaries in the profession.

Young Men's Christian Association of the University of Maryland* 




S. S. BURT, 

P. S. EVANS, Jr., M. D. 

General Secretary. 

WITH the beginning of the present collegiate year, the Intercollegiate Young Men's Christian Association of the city 
of Baltimore entered upon a new era. The officers of the Association and the faculties of the various schools had 
long felt that the association work needed some experienced person who could give his whole time to the work in 
the medical schools. 

To accomplish this result a meeting of the various faculties was held at the home of Dr. Howard A. Kelly last spring, 
and the Intercollegiate Department of the Young Men's Christian Association was organized, with our own Dr. Chew as 
President. This department consists of a member of the faculty of each school, together with the Presidents of the various 
college associations. 

Each school pledges itself to give a certain amount each year, and from these funds an intercollegiate secretary is 
employed to look after the work among the students. 

As regard to the work of the University of Maryland Young Men's Christian Association, we think we can say that 
we are doing better work than ever before. The student body, as a whole, seems to be taking a greater interest in the 
Association than in previous years, and if this interest keeps up, our work will progress with giant strides next year. Our 
reading rooms, opposite the Dean's office, are always occupied. Here are found thedaily papers and the current magazines, 
as well as all the popular games, as checkers, chess, dominoes, etc. This room is a most popular place for the students who 
wish to put in a quiet few minutes between lectures or laboratory work. Here he can come for a pleasant chat, to play some 
interesting game or to glance over the news of the day. We always try, by means of notices on the bulletin board, to keep 
the students posted of the topics of the Sunday afternoon meetings at the Central Building of the Young Men's Christian 

Next year we hope to see all department, of our work greatly enlarged, and our only hope is that the Lord will help 
us in our endeavor to help others along the right path.

i. Candidates for membership are required, in proof of eligibility, to drink a bottle of beer at one swipe. 

2. On the occasion of each meeting members are required to donate five cents, which goes to form a floating or sinking fund. 

3. The member who " does the rush " is exempt from payment of the above, but must fill his pockets for the benefit of 
the Club at the free-lunch counter. N. B. — He is requested to place the pretzels and potato salad in separate pockets. 

4. Members provide their own tobacco, but matches are furnished by the Club free of charge. 

5. Any freshman straying or being inveigled within the hallowed precincts, does the rush at his own expense ; after 
waiting upon the members he is allowed what's left. 

6. Members are requested to walk across to " Oom Paul " when they wish to expectorate, and not try to hit the fire- 
place from the opposite side of the room. 

7. The discussion of politics, religion, love affairs and the merits of various saloons is strictly prohibited, as it tends to 
disturb the harmony and unanimity, by which, alone, the object of the Club can be successfully attained. 

<S. Visitors are requested not to flirt with the girls opposite. It is also respectfully suggested that a certain amount of 
tact is required when a mug is emptied out of the window, as passers by are liable to complain. 

9. Visitors leaving the Club premises after 1 A. M., will go down stairs in single file, carrying their boots in their 
hands, and will turn to the right at the first landing. Any mistake is liable to land them in the landlady's room. 

10. To prevent jealousy, the smallest mug is to be filled first. 

This Club has been in existence for some time and is nightly growing in popularity, as the unsolicited testimonials 
atttached will show. The uniforms consist of pajamas, bathrobes and slippers, and the paraphernalia, one washpitcher 
(borrowed from the landlady), sundry mugs and one cuspidor named "Oom Paul," presented by the President. The coat-of- 
arms consists of a landlady rampant and a freshman couchant.

Class Members, 1900. 

History-Class 1900. 


GAIN, and for the last time, gentle reader, we beg to recount the vicissitudes, conquests, defeats, joys 
and pains of the Class of 1900, as it wavers on the threshold of a novel and more lucrative 1 '? | 

They pause for an instant in their closing career — just before they enter the inquisitional chambers to 
be disintegrated by the judgment that will in one case add another unit to the Professional market, or in 
another case, alas, necessitate the so-called " post graduate " — and hail you kind friend, and the world with 
the time honored and immortal, "A Morituri Salutate." 

The centennial year of 1900, sees us for the last time as a rollicking, gay set of Bohemians, mixing 
our arduous toil as devotees to /Esculapius, indiscriminately with such pleasures as are only known to those 
who have experienced the Latin Quarter of Paris. 

Permit us to reiterate, dearly beloved, our history of the past and relate our modus habitandi of the 
The first of October, 1896, a new set of converging agents, numbering something short of one hundred men, of all 
ages, and from all points of the compass, appeared at the p>ortals of the University of Maryland, to commence the process of 
primary development — and thus on this memorable date, did Time give birth to the Class of 1900. If one had time to 
give a minute description of this motly crew, one could easily compile a volume equal to an examination on Therapeutics, 
but only being allowed a year in which to generate this superficial account, such a feat would border on the impossible. 
The faces represented characters as varied as the faces were numerous. 

There were lean men, fat men, intellectual looking men, stupid-looking men, and various nondescripts. 
At last the doors were swung, and the conquering heroes trod for the first time their adopted home for the next 
four years. 

The jovial Dean, beaming with holy joy, welcomed them, one by one, shaking hands with his right, while he 
received the "open sesame" with his left, in the form of a fat check, direct from Papa's reluctant check-book. 

Time passed pleasantly enough during the first year. There were no " examins," and consequently the members of 
the class alternated the tedions " breaking in " study with sundry expeditions to see the town, and alack, some of them were 
so enraptured at the sight that they are at it yet. 

However, delightful April, with its budding flowers and balmy zephyrs, comes to relieve the monotony of this 
uncertain life, and this delightful month was a God-send to " 1900," for it gave them once more a chance to breathe fresh 


country air, to shake off the shackles of a restricted life, to close those instruments of torture — the text books — and, for a 
while at least, flee as a bird back to the homes of their childhood and the bosoms of their family (?). 

In the early part of the year, when the plodders were just emerging from the dim mist of uncertainty that shrouds 
the initial year of study, the Grim Reaper came to interrupt the earthly endeavors of one of the most congenial of their 
members. But death could not destroy the memory of his associates, and the name of Walter Dudley will ever exist in the 
minds of his class-mates — well beloved while he lived, deeply mourned when he died. 

October I, 1897, saw the appearance once more of rejuvenated " 1900" — all now fully prepared for a second wack 
at primary development. When time had flown well enough along to allow the Freshman Class of 1901 to feel its importance 
and become obstreperous, it became evident that measures would have to be taken to reduce this presumptuous gang of 
youths to their proper station. Consequently, after a new election of officers, the Class of 1900, in sundry secret meetings, 
devised means by which this task could be best accomplished. The audacious Freshman who dared "sport " a hirsute chin, 
was solemnly warned, by mysterious posters placed at intervals in the halls of the University, that his conduct was construed 
to result from presumptuousness of spirit, and unless said growth was removed in twenty-four hours, a desperate band of men 
had determined to resent the insult by forcibly removing the offending adornment, in a less scientific and gentle manner 
than would become, even a poor barber. Choice seats in the various study halls were forbidden the verdant " Freshy," and 
restrictions were placed on other privileges that made his conduct as a Freshman highly unbecoming and offensive to the 
dignified " Soph." 

The Freshmen naturally took exception to this summary treatment, and the result was — an increased growth of 
whiskers, and an independent strut that would have put the stage villain to shame. Belligerent articles were immediately 
drawn up by the offended " Sophs," and war to the teeth was decided upon. 

The climax to this drama occurred one balmy afternoon when the unsuspecting " Freshies " came marching down 
stairs from a late lecture, swelling with pride and exaltation. A band of the strongest "Sophs" had collected en masse at the 
first landing, and as each one of these youthful "swell-heads" made his appearance, he was unceremoniously seized and 
hurled through space, irrespective of whether heels or head were on top, until the ground floor checked the force of gravity, 
and a resounding " thump " echoed the note of the downfall that always follows pride. 

This process continued until each Freshman had received his reprimand, and as each hit the floor he gradually realized 
that his attitude was not the most dignified in all the world, and picking himself up with a "lost soul" expression, he 
painfully limped from the scene of his degradation. 

The Historian was never so forcibly reminded of Virgil and Dante viewing the stream of lost souls coursing through 
Hell, as he was on seeing this stream of Freshmen sailing through the buoyant Fther to join their friends who had proceeded 
them in their downward flight. 

After this lamentable occurrence, peace reigned supreme, and broken hats, collars, and limbs were forgotten for 
the nonce, in the near approach of the first series of " exams " for the Class of 1900. A strange metamorphosis now became 


evident — a strange "hollow eye" and "leanness" became common to all of the ''Sophs," and as the dreaded ordeal 
approached, the symptons of this peculiar malady were augmented. Intense excitement characterized the examination week. 
In most cases the examinations were a condition of veni, vidi, vici, but after it all — there was no shouting, no marches of 
triumph — complete exhaustion and inertia held sway over body and brain, and more dead than alive " 1900" once more 
departed from the College Gates, to spend a six months in the recuperative enjoyment of a congenial home. 

October 1, 1898, saw the reappearance of the now famous " 1900" as Juniors. All had fully recovered and were now 
ready to have another round for supremacy. It was rather an uneventful year, for there was considerable work and little 
play. Examinations in all their glory, and striking terror to the hearts of even the brave, once more were met and 
conquered (?) — and the third year of primary development had ended. 

Once more the toiler turned his mind to thoughts of pleasure — when he could embrace his loved one once more — and 
that with reasonable certainty that she was totally ignorant of " that Baltimore girl I hear of." 

This History from this point must abandon its general considerations — and delve in more special lore. This must 
needs be, for the Historian has been occupied for the last and senior year in prying into the secrets of a certain Thirty, who 
instead of decamping for home during their last vacation, took up an abode on the " Bowery " — in order to run the Hospital — 
a runnage of which it was deplorably in need — just think forty nurses — all unmarried — all eligible — whew! ! 

To the uninitiated let us explain that it is a time.honored custom to select (?) from the seniors, immediately after 
the completion of their third year, thirty stalwart " lobsters " as internes for the ensuing year — they are supposed to rise 
early — retire late and in the interim vary their time between playing nurse and playing with the nurses. They must all sign 
the " Riot Act " before entering on their honored duties, some of which are interesting : 

Article CXVIIQT, Section i. You shall not, by look, act or indiscretion betray the fact that you are a human agent. 

Sec. 2. Never talk to, whisper to or smile at any of the nurses in the Hospital — meet them on the outside and lose 
your job. 

Article QUIXOTE. If the " Residents" become peevish — pacify them — bimanually. 

Article SICKS. If you, by force of necessity, need anything that a nurse may procure for you, you must first, formally, 
state your need to Mogidus Optimus, who in turn transmits it to a subordinate, and he in turn transmits it to a sub-subordinate, 
and he in turn, most likely, will apprise the nurse that the student wants something, and you get it, unless, perhaps, it has an 
oscillatory savor, and even then you get it, but in colic. 

Article . If you have a grievance, state it to the " Authority," and you will be assured that it will not occur 

again — they fire you. 


Oh, well, they are all unique in a manner, but the Board of Editors may object to any more lengthy revelation. 
(" They do." ) 

The domicile of the " Chosen " Thirty is a neat (?) little cottage just under the eaves of the fostering Hospital. It is 
known, vulgarly, as the " House " (very appropriate), but the " Thirty " are compelled to call it " Home." 

The Historian gained all the following data from sundry trips with Asmodeus skyward, where the imp and he sat on 
the edge of a cloud, and with the aid of an X-ray, allowed vision to insinuate itself into the palatial interior of the far-famed 
" House" — and "seek doiits" — but delicacy hinders his tongue. 

One could write an Encyclopaedia Britannica on the occurrences in that unassuming "joint," but let a few suffice, for 
sleep, gentle reader, even now wafts thee off into the phantasmagoric unreality of fairy land. 

The first portion of this novel life, thirty abreast, was spent most congenially, and many were the conventions of the 
convivial spirits at the dead hour of night, when good people had left the cares of life behind for a while — and many were the 
head-aches the next morning, and spicy were the lectures delivered later, on the subject in the " Office." 

There is a little garden in the rear of the " House," and it is overlooked by the Nurses' Home, and ofttimes would the 
festive bunch, like a gang of Romeos, armed with guitars and bad voices, hie to this sequestered spot to pour forth the 
longings of their anguished souls to the always sympathetic Juliets in the windows above. 

Yes indeed, Juliets were piled ten deep, and when Lou's exquisite tenor rang out on the frosty night air. you could 
hear just fort)- ecstatic sighs, mingled with a wail of deep anguish from the mascot pup, our dear old " Mattie." That pup, 
what a superb beast, so sympathetic, always howled when kicked, and what a pedigree — picked up on the street. (Girls, 
how would you like to be the pup?) 

The " House " seems to be a centripetal point for messenger boys and other nondescript errand runners — the exciting 
cause is a note, and the predisposing cause is usually a lady making a reception room of the lamppost, on the corner of Green 
and Baltimore streets. 

You are all aware, no doubt, that all the beverages that tend to incoordination of movements are not allowed to enter the 
angelic abode of thirty medical students. Consequently, dress-suit cases are all the rage, and those who have no dress-suit 
cases substitute the inner man. 

Before closing, the grand New Year's Banquet of 1900 must be recounted. It was held on New Year's night and there 
were about thirty odd participants, all told ; some with large capacities, others with small ones and numerous intermediates. 
There was egg-nogg galore and consumers galorer, wines of priceless value — Tommy Welch's donation. There were 
sandwiches a la tout le tnonde, in fact, everything that a student could desire. Our dearly beloved Paul did the honors and 
the others did the rest. It took about two hours for sociability to reign supreme and then those wary of bodily injury 

quietly withdrew. Did anybody rip the tail from Dr L e's evening coat when he was so hospitably thrown in bed ? 

The Historian soliloquizes not. But, alas, all good things end, and many with horrible suddenness, and just so with this 
ever-to-be-remembered occasion. 

Narcosis came, swift and sure, and one by one they withdrew from the social strife to fall into deep and restful 
slumbers wherever nature refused to act further in uncertain locomotion. 

The Historian can remember no more of this gorgeous festival. About this time the lethargic influence of the whole 
affair had reached the clouds, and Asmodeus and the Historian resolved to join the snoring world once more. 

After this memorable occasion, peace and quiet became the order of the day, and the process of "boning " for the last 
" exams." was commenced in earnest. 

Xo more does the rattle of the "chips" denude the purses of the many to pay the tuitions of the few. No more do 
the dress-suit cases wend their doubtful excursions. No more do those "Angels of Mercy," those essences of philanthropy 
hover about the. windows overlooking the backyard and strain their ears to catch the dulcet tones that are silenced, 
perhaps, forever. — (Alcoholic solution.) 

No more need the timid ones fear the approach of the dauntless N. O. H. D. Fraternity. Xo more does Xed 
become eloquent in his appeals for the bucket. Never more will Charles climb the tree to see the promised land. 
/Esculapius is now king, and a few more months will complete the primary development of " 1900," and then before the 
footlights, with spike-tailed coats and decollete vests, they will make their first bows as M. Ds. 


Then will commence life's discouraging struggle, to live or die, sink or swim. Time alone will tell the tale. We, after 
all, are naught but puppets with which the fates amuse themselves. So let credit be to him who falls fighting valiantly as 
well as to him who lives to reap his reward. 

If the reader has followed thus far, permit the Chronicler, in behalf of the Class of 1900 and himself, to thank you for 
your kindness and perseverance, for it has, indeed, necessitated extreme perseverance to ward off the attack of somnolence. 

They all hope to meet you, gentle reader, in the their future capacity, and also hope (?) that you may never need their 
services, but needing them that you may never hesitate. 

A fond adieu forever as " 19CO."

Class Prophecy - 1 900* 

The best of prophets of the future is the past." — Byron. 

THE waning strength of the year 1920 ■was fast yielding to the life and vigor of the new year, upon the eve of which I sat 
before the gladsome warmth of my office fire, particularly grateful to me this evening, after the day's routine work. 
Selecting a cigar, that never-failing source of solace, I gave myself to a retrospection of the pleassure of the past, the 
memories of which are so dear that one cannot but regret the advent of each new year that must, indeed, make more distant those 
pleasures of the past and more uncertain those of the future. In this meditative mood I glance about the room, my eyes falling 
upon the familiar faces of my classmates, of which the careers of many have stood as a beacon and inspiration to the 
struggling young /Esculapius and an honor to their Alma Mater. So widely scattered, from Baltimore to Syria, are my 
classmates, that any thought of them must be merely conjecture. 

For since the commencement banquet, no meeting has served the purpose of bringing us together. It is the 20th 
anniversary, that ever memorable housemen's reception, upon the occasion of which resolutions were broken and made again, 
to be kept with a steadfastness that has not been an inconspicuous factor in their rise to fame. So beautifully and elequently 
prophecied for them by our ever-smiling Superintendent, when he so gracefully responded to his toast. The soporific effects 
of the cigar, together with the mellowing thoughts of a man well dined, causes me to fall asleep, a sleep of contentment, 
and to dream a dream of which you shall now be apprised. 

I see rising before me, in clouds, a rugged height, a mountain of fame. Its rocky roads are lined with victims, the 
numbers terrifying in itself to the undergrad seeking his M. D., but with the practiced step and undaunted courage of an 
alumnus, I ascend with ease, and the pathway, while easy to me, did seem to offer four distinct obstructions to the under- 
graduate, and upon the rocks I found stranded the many hapless victims of Miles, Atkinson, Neale and Winslow, even Joe 
Beard had his representatives ; but good reader, when that sturdy rock of Tiffany was reached, I might have supposed a gas 
explosion or a Johnstown flood had preceded me, but the magic name of Tiffany brought reasonable explanation for this 
terrifying spectacle. 

My journey now came to an end, the summit was reached, and I soon found that upon this lofty height of fame 1900 
had registered to the man, each one finding, in turn, that fame, like hope, made a good breakfast but a poor supper, 
descended to the less rarified air and began each for himself his struggle for existence, in some cases, by vocations that were 
more lucrative and more congenial than that noble profession into which tliey were so auspiciously ushered at the 


commencement of 1900. The days are short in this land of fame, and I find that night has fallen, but its darkness is dispelled 
bv the beautiful silver rays of the summer moon. Coming from the distance and wafted upon the sweetly-scented air comes 
the familiar strains of the nurses' favorite, "The Beautiful Irish Maid." The music draws nearer, and in the moonlight I 
behold a wandering minstrel, the careless debonnair, the tattered form and the voice so like Armstrong's, I can't be mistaken — 
housemen of 1901, take warning, it was Daniels that brought him to this. 

Alas, many poor housemen's susceptibility to the charms of these fair divinities of the Hospital led to numerous 
cases of cardiac disturbance, followed by exaggerated cases of acute nursitis, the most fatal case being experienced by 
Charley Beck, who sought a radical cure, matrimony ; the recovery was immediate. 

To mention Beck is to speak of Lewis, poor old "Big," some say he graduated with "blighted" hopes, but, 
" may by," we are mistaken, for it is said, " one little June-bug overcame all previous disappointments," and " Big " no longer 
flies his flag of truce. 

Realizing that a busy day awaits me, if I would see all my classmates on the morrow, I seek my restful couch to awaken 
in the morning refreshed and eager, with the anticipated pleasure of meeting my colleagues. Without a definite idea of 
my route, I start upon my way, and proceed but a short distance, when, to my joy, I see a smile, with my old friend Pat 
behind it. this being one of the days upon which he is not busy. He promised to walk with me and take me to see 
Billingslea. Sauntering along, questioning each other with a keen interest in regard to the events of the interim since 
last we met, when in the midst of our conversation, without warning, Pat gives every evidence of a fit that would have 
even awed Dr. Miles. At first I was alarmed and looked about for aid. I saw coming up the street a wagon, bearing the 
well-known sign, " Elite Laundry." Pat's sudden recovery, with the disappearance of the wagon, explained it all — Saturday, 
laundry bill due. Continuing our walk, we find ourselves at the Billingslea farm, and being told that he is about the 
grounds, proceed to hunt him up. Our quest is not a long one, for we soon see the object of our search, half asleep, leaning 
against a fence, contentedly chewing a straw, giving an occasional scratch to the back of his prize pig. While in the 
country, we decide to visit Bill's neighbor, who is none other than Dan Stone, the David Harum of his class. Dan 
proposed a horse trade, the advantages of which were generously shown by him to be in our favor, but his proclivities 
in this direction were too well known, and we decided to let him keep his horse. 

< )n the road home, we stopped at the Insane Asylum and saw poor Houston and Whitehurst trying to arrange a 
successful schedule for the baseball team. 

'I he next public building visited was an Infant Asylum, managed by Wessell and Hoyt, and inconsequence of the 
flourishing condition of this institution, there were many empty cradles on the Bowery. On the outskirts of the city I saw a 
hothouse, filled with carnations of rare beauty and culture. This, I am told, is owned by Gill Owings, who, after 
graduating, found that necessary part of his toilet, a boutonnicre of this flower, was cut off, for he was no longer in direct 
communication with the nurses, so decided to raise for himself the coveted flower, though not entirely from a sentimental 


Stopping at the gate of one of the beautiful country homes that lined the roadway, I ask of a group of little children 
in the yard if they can direct us to Dr. Matthew's, and in a voice they exclaim, " why, that's papa, and he is in the house." 
In a trice I find myself cordially, if not ceremoniously, introduced into Mat's house, where we are warmly welcomed by this 
sturdy, country practitioner. Pat and I find, to our delight, that it is the family-dinner hour, but, with a becoming 
reluctance, we decline to stay for dinner, but our host is good enough to ask us to reconsider, which we do. Around the 
table the conversation turns to the boys, and it is here that I learn that Charley Conser is lecturing at a well-known Womans' 
College upon the value of facial cosmetics ; Demarco is court physician to the crown of Italy ; Stevens is physician to a 
gang of moonshiners and doing well ; Houff started for South Africa, shortly after graduation, and died of trichinosis while 
bravely resisting the onset of the Boers ; H. J. Strickler is surgeon on the P. X. & W. Railroad, and upon one occasion, as I 
was waiting in a depot belonging to this road, my train being late, I began to converse with two engineers. Speaking of 
the perils of their vocation, one of them told me how, after an end-to-end collision, he lay in a pile of debris, pressed 
beneath his engine, scalded about the body and limbs, and the old fellow was proud of his experience and thought it the 
acme of man's endurance, but his pride was of short duration, for the second engineer simply said he had been operated upon 
by Dr. Strickler. Just then my train whistled. 

Glancing over the editorials of a well-known Southern daily, I noticed very encouraging news relative to the race 
question. It seems that, again, the Class of 1900 shared in the honor of aiding in the solution of such a vital issue, for 
Chisolm and Barrow, as its representatives, practicing in Georgia, have by their practice so successfully solved the negro 
question, that Georgia coons now bring a premium. 

Upon further perusal of the paper, I notice an account of the arrest of a certain Rufus Kight, M. D. Can this be 
alias " Puggy Neale." Farther reading proves the same. It appears that, after leaving the Maternite, where he had gotten 
so accustomed to going to the door of a house, and by simply calling " case on Burgundy alley, eclampsia, or Caesarian 
section," and having all hands turn out, the matter became a mania, and upon this occasion he made the announcement, 
during the wee sma' hours, at a house where medical advantages were not appeciated, and as a result, a policeman turned out 
and took " Puggy " in. Even Allen couldn't save him. 

Seeing news of Kight, stimulates me to look further and see what other surprises await me. It is the following card : 



Prof. Walter Wicks. 


I knew Wicks could do all that he claimed, for whether it be leading a Friday cotillion or treading the light fantastic, 
with a 240-pound maiden, at a Cider alley pig roast, my confidence in his terpsichorean ability was unlimited. 
The next advertisement that attracted my attention was that of — 

J. Claggett Robertson, 


Special Discount to Students. 

I discarded my paper and started for the Robertson Alleys, but was destined never to reach them, for, in a short time 
my attention was attracted to a little side street, where I heard the sounds of a base drum, indiscriminately mingled with the 
eloquent pleadings of one trying to lead his hearers, a motly crowd, from the paths of vice and entice them to join the 
Anti-swearing League of the Salvation Army. Edging my way to the centre of the crowd, I recognized Medders. The 
sincerity and intensity of his arguments were pathetic and exactly those that have made so many prohibition presidents. 
Greenburg carrying the banner and Reese playing so feelingly on the drum completed this little group of workers, and with 
the conclusion of Medders' speech, his two confederates, heading a small procession of converts, started for their headquarters. 

Across the street from where I stood there appeared the following sign : 

Roland Hart, 


House-warmings Supplied 

Stepping across the street, I pulled the bell and was soon talking to Hart. Business was brisk, he told me, saying 
he had an affair on hand for that night, and he extended to me an invitation so cordial, that, under most circumstances, 
I must have accepted it, but I had a memory of some of those little gatherings at "648," planned by Hart, which 20 years 
have not effaced. Thanking him for his invitation, I took my leave, continuing my walk, wondering what next. Passing a 
little patent medicine store and glancing in the window, I noticed the familiar form of Ewalt. His earnest expression 
betokens a matter of serious moment, and a second glance shows him to be engaged in the sale of a box of homoeopathic 
pills, that, he positively assured the purchaser, would cure any form of hernia in twenty-four hours. Disposing of his 
customer, Ewalt turned to welcome me. While thus engaged, Lewis, my old roommate, came in, with a smile that gave 
every evidence of prosperity, and with his characteristic generosity invited me to the matinee with him. From a force of 



habit, acquired in days gone by, I asked how much he had on him, to which he replied that Harry Xaylor, Jr., had just 
paid him for his quiz, one Jurisprudence and Hygiene (this quiz being Lewis' main means of livelihood). Thus assured, 
we started for the theatre, and on the way Lewis made a move that caused me to be most apprehensive of an invitation 
which he had given me to dine with him en famile, for he stopped at the well-known fish dealer, F. S. Orem, and bought 
a codfish of unusual size and quality. Without further interruption we reached the theatre, where we were warmly 
welcomed, from the boxoffice window, by my old friend, Jack Reik, whose affluence and influence in the theatrical line is 
visibly, and I might say, audibly vouched for by the four-carat diamond adorning the glossy expanse of his pink shirt. 
Knowing his old classmates and their probable financial condition, Jack, in his state of prosperity, takes pity upon us and 
invites us to occupy a box. Hardly do we take our seats before the curtain rises and Frederick Lawford, the renowned 
violinist, makes his appearance amidst a tumult of applause, it being the matinee girls' time, and they were in evidence to do 
honor to this long-hair artist, and truly, this adulation was but a just tribute to a great musician, and eclipsed anything of 
the kind since the triumph of Paderewski. The next treat on the program was a sketch by Edward Sanborn Smith, entitled 
" What is Home without a Rubber Plant." That little Eddy was a favorite there could be no doubt, and I naturally 
felt a pardonable pride in my classmates and looked with keen interest for the next triumph But, we were now given a 
treat that was not billed. In the family circle there appeared a slight commotion, and looking up from the box where we 
sat I saw a family party, composed of Schields, Tarran and Cannon, each with a chubby-faced little youngster, their 
appearance alone a winning testimonial to Dr. Mitchell's modified milk formula. The little ones were sitting upon 
their fathers' laps quietly, when, in an unguarded moment, one of the youngsters pinched one of his companions, and then 
the scene was truly great, each proud parent assumed his full complement of parental dignity, and each censured the other 
two for the ill-breeding of their sons and adjourned to the foyer to settle the question. The performance having reached 
the thirsty period, Lewis and I retired to the cafe. Upon inquiry for W. H. Smith, Lewis assured me that the reports of 
this famous surgeon had not been exaggerated and that his private sanitarium was second to none in this broad land. 
As of old, Smith devotes himself assiduously to his work, taking but one month in the twelve for his vacation, which, for 
the past two years, was spent in the vicinity of Sweet Chalybeate Springs, Virginia. After his second visit, Smith brought 
home the attraction, which was not the health-giving waters of the place, but in a word, Smith has a wife and a cook in 
one. Noticing a newsboy, I called for a paper and the startling announcement fills me with horror — a well-known 
Baltimorean in the hands of the cannibals. The article goes on to state that, while upon one of his missionary visits to the 
Philippines, Dr. Skillman was captured by one of the tribes of the interior, the most bloodthirsty and ferocious savages 
and a constant menace to our progressive civilization in our new possession, but, the paper went on to state, also, that as 
terrible as was the death of Dr. Skillman, it was not without good results, for immediately following the feast, at which 
he was chief entree, this terrible tribe developed an attack of peculiar gastritis that proved fatal in every case, and thus this 
little Skillman dinner served the purpose of exterminating a tribe which, in my younger days, proved no mean obstacle 
to the peerless troops under General Otis. 




On the way from the theatre we passed Kahn's bookstore, and wishing to see the new books stepped inside. Kahn 
showed me a book that he claimed had an immense run among medical men, especially students, who are desirous of the 
correct information in regard to class elections. The book, I was told, is universally read and is in its third edition, of 
100,000 each. The book was affectionately dedicated to Kid Barrow, the author being none other than the renowned 
Irving J. Spear. Securing a copy of this treasured volume, I left the store and found myself upon a thoroughfare bounding 
a well-known plaza. The usual Saturday evening crowd thronged the streets and fakirs were everywhere in evidence. 
Towards the centre of the square, I noticed one of these worthy gentlemen standing upon a barrel, diligently extolling upon 
the virtues of a certain elixir of life, that he promised to be a specific for anything from " stunbruises to alopecia." The 
crowd, though of good size, did not seem to have the style of customer suited to the wiles of this little fat fakir, and, for a 
moment, I feared my old friend Tom Green would wait sometime to make a sale. But, just at this moment, there appeared 
on the outskirts of the crowd a probable customer, in the person of a rather rural looking gentleman, who, sitting upon a 
wagon load of produce, seemed lost in the flood of eloquence of this great healer, and in a moment poor old Hebb had 
stepped down from his wagon and invested the profits of the day's sale in the purchase of this mysterious potion, and with 
great excitement prepared to give the elixir an " internal " trial, but the result was never known to me, for, just prior to 
making the test, Hebb, with almost criminal carelessness, deposited in the crowd that ever present quid of tobacco. A 
profound shock, an hour of horror followed and this tumult of excitement seemed to arouse me and I awakened to find my 
office bell ringing a Happy New Year, with the anouncement of a patient. 

The Copper. 

(Begging the pardon of Mr. Kipling.) 

A cop there was and he went to arrest 
(Even as cops will do) 
Some students whose actions were not of the best 
(We called him a " sophy " in uniform dressed), 
But the dupes his identity never guessed 
(Even as dupes will do.) 

Some students there were and their time they spent 
(Even as students will do) 
Following pleasure with thoughtless intent 
(Pawning their clothes when they hadn't a cent), 
Hut the time had now come for the youths to repent 
(Even as youths must do.) 

Oh ! the things they said and the way they plead 
And the sneaking escapes they planned, 

All for a Copper who never was real 

(And now we know he never was real), 
Hut thev never did understand. 

Oh ! the fears they wasted and the tears they wasted 

And the work of the head and hand, 
All for the Copper who was only a fake 
(And now we know he was ever a fake), 

But they did not understand. 

The " soph " was stripped of his uniform 
(Even as fakes must be), 
But he'd played his prank, so he didn't mourn 
(Now it isn't on record that vengeance was sworn), 
But if /were that " soph " I'd be somewhat forlorn 
(Even as fakes must be.) 

And it isn't the shame and it isn't the blame 

That stings like a white hot brand ; 
It's the coming to know that he ne'er was a cop 
(Seeing at last he could ne'er be a cop) 

And they could not understand.

The Soubrette. 

She's so sweet and demure, 
That you couldn't, I'm sure, 

Imagine the trouble she raise?— 
The boys see and adore, 
Then they watch the stage doer. 

And all Howard street rings with her praises. 

'Shi's so chic," they declare — 
'Such a cute Frenchy air''— 

"And she's built according to Gray ! " 
So the thought of her looks, 
Instead of their books. 
Holds place in their brains the next day. 

They must go the next night, 

And though they know it's not right, 

All the week they continue to sin so — 
They wind up with a drunk, 
And then when they Hunk, 

They blame it on poor Doctor Winslow. 


The Faculty. 

First comes our finest lecturer, 

Beloved Professor C. 
Who gives quinine when e'er he can. 

Or iron t. i. d.; 
May everyone who listens when 

He speaks of human ills, 
Cure four and twenty patients 

For every one he kills. 

There was a man in our town, 

Who jumped with all his might, 
He jumped right through a bramble bush, 

And soon was " out of sight ; " 
But when he found his eyes were out, 

With all his might and main, 
He rushed to Hiram's offices, 

He's now in sight again. 

Professor Ashby's fame we knew 

In Gynaecology, 
Is just as great as Marion Sims, 

At least, so Sims told me ; 
Long may he live, the best of men, 

And prosper to the end. 
Though he often cuts an abdomen, 

He never cut a friend. 

Here comes the babies' doctor, 

Our good and jolly Dean, 
From twelve to one on week days 

" His Jiblets " can be seen ; 
When he starts out to see the kids. 

His patients oft have smiled, 
For of all this famous faculty, 

He alone can bear a child. 

And now a noted surgeon talks 

On symptoms of gangrene, 
And now he skips to how to cut 

In taking out the spleen ; 
Alas, he's gone to tetanus, 

Ye gods ! I do declare, 
As well as learning surgery, 

I'm learning how to swear. 

And now we strive our addled brains 

With higher thoughts to train, 
And go to hear a lecture 

On the sulci of the brain ; 
Thus every day at half-past four 

We wend our weary way. 
And though "its Miles to lecture," 

We walk it every day. 

Look out for Stokes, he's full of germs, 

He carries them around, 
He would follow a bacillus 

Even six feet under ground ; 
I really don't know what he'll do 

When he leaves this mortal sphere, 
And Satan meets him at the door, 

With "all things are sterile here." 

Of Coale, our noble chemist, 

I've often heard men say 
The fatty tissue on his frame 

Outweighs a bale of hay. 
That Neale and others balance things, 

In my mind, there's no doubt, 
While Neale brings people in the world 

The others put them out. 

But, hark ! Professor Winslow talks 

Of gross Anatomy, 
And soon he tells the boys a joke 

That fills them all with glee ; 
Then hear Professor Atkinson, 

With a solemn accent say 
" Dimethylaniideazobenzole " 

Is a good thing in its way. 

Here is to our University, 

The finest in the land ; 
May she always win at foot-ball, 

Or what ever else she had planned, 
May her sons increase and multiply, 

As sons are apt to do, 
So that in the twentieth century 

She'll have sons and daughters, too.

History — Class 1901* 

HE American eagle, wafting its flight amidst the clear azure sky, bears on its beak an inscription which 
shows to the world that it has been recorded in the annals of the past, that the Class of 1901 of the 
University of Maryland should stand at the close of the old or the beginning of the new century 
(whichever it is I will leave for the pedants to decide), imbibing at the fountain of wisdom, filling themselves to 
overflowing with that phantom of delight, "knowledge." Having passed through the trials and tribulations of 
the first two years, they have now ascended the supreme heights of a "Junior" and consider themselves monarchs of all 
they survey. Upon this lofty position they look back into the past with honor, and predict great things for the future, but 
time alone will reveal the true nature of things. 

To give a descriptive account of each member of the aggregation would border almost on the impossible. Suffice it, 
therefore, to give only in a general way a laconic account of the deeds of these worthy sons of toil. The first thing of 
interest concerns one of our learned professors, Dr. Neale. We being mindful that he was about to leap rashly among the 
blossomed-covered thorns of matrimony (and probably now wishes himself out again), had decided to give him a little 
something. Oh ! readers, our hearts were as boundless as the ocean, but our pocketbooks, well, you know how that is 
yourself. Anyhow, we decided to give him this something, though it may serve no other end than just a kind memento. 
Next question arose, who was to present these things of beauty. Our President, owing to his coyness, and probably fearing 
he would soar too high into eloquence, absolutely refused. At last, it was decided to tickle our Dean a little by asking him 
to distinguish himself. Of course, he accepted. So on the 2d of November, as the sun was stealing out from its cowl of 
mist, the members of 1901 congregated in the Chemical Hall to instil vigor and encouragement into this beloved professor. 
As the door opened and the figure of Dr. Neale could be seen, the crowd commenced to whistle the wedding march, and the 
feeling of self-importance which prevailed his physiognomy was a picture which not even the painter's brush could do 
justice to. But 1 suppose it is natural for one, on an occasion like this, to feel that he is theo nly grain of sand on the 

Our Dean made a pretty little presentation speech, containing some beautiful thoughts, wishing Dr. Xeale success 
in the new field of life which he was about to walk. At the conclusion of his speech, our President, Mr. Mauldin, walked up 
to the desk and unvtiled something. What was it? Gold, silver, too ; what is the matter with Dr. Xeale? — he has retracted 


his steps, there he leans against the blackboard, his hand before his eyes, and an expression on his face that would say, if it 
could speak, "Oh! fortune, doth thou smile upon me?" The brilliancy from those wonderful things of beauty dazzled 
everybody in the room, they all had a case of photophobia. What were they? Well, I would say, most anything from 
a teaspoon up to a refrigerator, and, judging from the looks of them, they must have been selected by a bimetallist, for they 
were silver on one side and gold on the other. After fully recovering himself, Dr. Neal said : " Gentlemen, I appreciate 
the gift, not on account of its intrinsic value, but for the cordial sentiments that go with it." Now, if he really meant this, 
it must have been appeciated very much, for there was, I am sure, more sentiment than cold cash contained in it. " For all 
that glitters is not gold." 

About this time the Class of 1902 began to feel their importance and decided to have a banquet. Did they have it? 
A description of this would fill a volume. I will say that the interruption of the banquet by the Class of 1901 may be 
compared to the interruption of the sleep of Orestes by the furies. 

The majority of the Class of 1901 assemble once a week to be quizzed by our little quiz-master, Dr. Allen ; he is so 
young and so fair. I can't tell why, but everybody seems to be deeply interested in this branch. I think most every one 
would like to know why Ballenger was one night so interested in the Secondary Areola of blondes ; there must be some 
reason for it. Also, why Major Paul R. Brown, Jr. (what a name) seems so deeply interested in this quiz. He sits with his 
hands upon his forehead, endeavoring to pick up every gem of knowledge that emanates from our Professor's lips. 

Our hearts leap forward to the Historian of the Class of 1900, especially, for his description of the " Drama" (as he 
calls it) between the Classes of 1 900 and 1901 two years ago. It is a glorious thing ; one glance at it would move the dullest 
soul and melt the painter and the poet into tears. His descriptive powers are wonderful, and his imagination vivid. I predict 
that some day he will let fall from his pen some of the most distorted facts ever woven by human genius. It is a funny thing 
in human knowledge that we can always arrive at the conclusion we want to, and it will be a true one (according to our own 
view), whether the premise be false or true. Such, I think, is the syllogism the Historian of 1900 has launched upon us. 
For if he would travel backward on the river of thought and refresh his memory, I am sure he would see that things were 
not as his self-concocted drama would lead one to infer. I said he had a vivid imagination, for it was wholly a thing of 
imagination, one of his air castles, with a foundation of snow or sand. This needs no proof, it is self-evident. I will, 
however, argue it no longer, for in the words of the Spanish proverb, " It is a waste of lather to try to shave an ass." 

The mighty warriors of 1901 come from almost every point on the compass; from where the morning sun bathes its 
face in the crystal waters of the Atlantic, to where the gentle zephyrs blow across the Pacific; from the ice-clad peaks of the 
Arctic region to the tropical climes of the West Indies. 

One more year will complete their course at the University of Maryland, then they will wrap the drapery of their 
gowns around them and steal away from the fostering arms of their Alma Mater and launch out on the ocean cf life. Some, 
perhaps, will have in their possession the oars that will enable them to steer through its storms and sail through its rocks and 
shoals, and others, perhaps, will be as a bubble on the stream of thought, and although they may catch the sunshine for a 
moment, they will soon float down the swift current and be seen no more. Historian. 


The Police Raid. 

It was evening on the Bowery, 

And a heavy fog hung low, 
When a cop rang the bell at 629 

And asked for McEachern, you know, 
His landlady said he was in at tea, 

Went to call him, then back she came, 
Said he'd left the house quite a while ago, 

But the cop was on to the game. 

He knew that Bokit must have climbed o'er the fence. 

As frightened as ever could be, 
So next Mr. Cop called at 648, 

'Twas Williams he wanted to see ; 
He caught hold of Houcks by a trifling mistake, 

And said, " Sir, is Williams your name ? " 
But the youth blew out for the nearest side street, 

For he was not on to the game. 

The copper then crossed to 645, 

Followed by students galore ; 
" Is Bob Stuart at home ? " he politely asked 

Of the fairy who came to the door, 
But she was not quite such an easy mark, 

And a fib did she quickly frame — 
" He's down mid the green fields of Virginia" — 

Fair " Zaza" was on to her game. 

Number 635 was visited next, 

And Pierce was the honored one there ; 
He stopped playing set-back and went with the cop, 

In sadness descending the stair ; 
Poor Donohue then was scared nearly to death, 

He never has since been the same, 
But his friends kindly saved him from going to jail, 

By putting him on to the game. 

Messmore was taken without any fuss, 

And got to the corner of Green, 
When the cop turned pale and started to run, 

For " Bruno " appeared on the scene ; 
A merry chase followed, the students all yelled, 

It really was not at all tame, 
Messmore was bewildered, but greatly relieved, 

Though not really on to the game. 

The pace was now quickened, the cops running well, 

When the one in the lead lost his hat ; 
" It's Dutchie Gruver," cried Messmore, in greatest 

" To think that he faked me like that." 
The race was now ended, " Dutchie " won by a neck ; 

But he won — you know — just the same, 
He fairly rolled in the door at 61S, 

And they all got on to the game. 

A gay Bacillus, to gain him glory, 

Once gave a ball in a laboratory. 

The fete took place on a cover glass, 

Where vulgar germs could not harass. 

None but the cultured were invited, 

(For microbe cliques are well united), 

And tightly closed the ballroom doors, 

To all the germs containing spores. 

The Staphylococci first arrived — 

To stand in groups they all contrived — 

The Streptococci took great pains 

To seat themselves in graceful chains. 

While, somewhat late, and two by two, 

The Diplococci came in view. 

The Pneumacocci, stern and haughty, 

A Tragedy. 

Declared the Gonococci naughty, 

And would not care to stay at all 

If they were present at the ball. 

The ball began, the mirth ran high, 

With not one thought of danger nigh. 

Each germ enjoyed himself that night, 

With never fear of the Phagocyte. 

'Twas getting late (and some were "loaded ") 

When ajar of formalin exploded, 

And drenched the happy dancing mass 

Who swarmed the fatal cover glass. 

Not one survived, but perished all 
At this Bacteriologic ball.

Banquet Day — December- 


What nobler aim can man attain 
Than conquest over human pain. 

T WAS, indeed, with sensations of joy and pleasure that we hailed the dear old campus and revered 
halls of our University at the beginning of the second epoch of our voyage. Withal there was a 
certain amount of sadness mingled, as welcoming some old comrade of the past voyage, we failed to 
discern others who had been with us. The treacherous and shifting shoals off Capes Smith and Cul- 
breth, although guarded with the most improved lighthouses and apparatus, had proven too much for 
them. They had found it necessary to put back to port and await fair winds or seek another vocation. 
What a year it had been. 


October the 3d had been the day set for sailing, and unlike the christening of the battleship Kentucky, we swore by 
the time-honored custom. With an air of reverence and expectancy, we encounter, for the first time, the Mecca of our 
journey to the University of Maryland. Full well we knew what was in store for us ere the realizations of our dreams should 
be reached. Having successfully been launched upon our career, the stockholders decided to commission the ship and 
appointed a day for the cermony. In the meanwhile, news came in that a pirate ship, of an antedated type, the second 
year men intended to be present, so while they slumbered in the anatomical dock, being hindered by barnacles for 
moving rapidly, we held our fete elsewhere. The following men were Commissioned for twelve months :• N. M. Hegge, 
Canada, Captain; J. H. Fraser, S. C, Commander; I. L. Hanes, Lieut. -Commander ; F. L. Tozier, N. Y., Ensign, and G C. 
Winterson, Md., Surgeon. 

What a ship it was ! A strong, sturdy boat, quivering in every rib, eager to enter upon her voyage. 

We, her crew, came not excelling in our strong points, but realizing our infirmities, determined that when the 
goal should have been reached none could point at our record without saying, " Well done, men, we are proud of you." 
Ours was an eventful trip, fraught with many pleasures, but these were tempered by the vicissitudes of all such voyages. Well 
represented in the various athletic and social events, glee club, track team, foot-ball, all had " 1902 " men to aid in carrying 
laurels. Walker and Travers, bearing the brunt of many a hard-fought struggle in guards, back and end plays, could always be 


relied upon. Who would dare improve upon our dignified Storrs and gigantic Stubbs, a dream in musical fields. The days 
quickly passed and Christmas found us ready for a little vacation. With the coming of the New Year came the full realization 
of what was before us. As we would work night after night, stiff work it was. Doctors Harper and Goebiel would 
demonstrate upon the origin and insertion of the "Sciatic " muscle. We felt that volumes had never been written and some 
new lights would shine forth. Poor Drewry. " Oh ! woman, woman, why wilt thou haunt me so ? " " It was ever thus from 

childhood's happy hours." He it was who wrote the sequel to . It is still in press and from rumors will be his thesis 

on graduation day. The days began to pass more rapidly and signs of land were observed. The entire crew was thrown 
into a state of excitement, as our chart showed many treacherous shoals, off which many adverse winds always raged. 
These were to be encountered ere we could reach a haven. At last, the harbor was reached and orders for entering dry dock 
were given. We left upon six months' leave of absence. With a hearty grip and sincere words, we bade our comrades 
"Good-bye." Good sailors we had been and a true crew, perhaps weather-beaten and bronzed, but underneath this rough 
surface was beginning to be laid the foundation of an irresistible force, which some day will aid in guiding and proving the 
strong factor in our lives. 

Summer soon flitted away, books were unpacked, dusted, and trunks packed. On October 3d, the old campus and 
halls rang with laughter and song. The life of the University was again taken up, and with a fair breeze and stout hearts, 
our second voyage had begun. Examinations had been heard from and our craft was ready for sea. What a shipley boat 
she was, and with garners of flowers and songs of the old Norse King, Rudolph, we were ready for any emergency. Even if 
we, DO-NO-HO, failed to lead the Class, there was an interesting finish. The roll was called and absentees noted. Gobiel 
has left us, perhaps to assume charge of the chair of Anatomy in Sleepy Hollow. Heviren, he of broad understanding, now 
counts X-ties for the Golden Ruby. Many familiar faces, who had often decorated Buzzard's Roost, have disappeared. 
There has been new timber placed in and we were glad to welcome them. A silver-tongued speaker, Bye Baby Ranson, is 
with us, and with him came Pardum, Dieterich, Hayes, and other good men. Huff, even he, the deep thinker, has at last 
solved the problem that two are one and 1 + 1= 1, and now walks the halls with the dignified air well-becoming a man of 
expansive ideas. It has been rumored that Bill Carrigan will soon follow him. Our best wishes, old fellow. Even in the 
mess rooms it became noised that we were possessed with one great inventive genius. Donohoe's patented room-heater 
takes the lead. There are others. Is it not right to claim what is ours? To us belongs the honor of being the first 
undergraduate Class to hold a banquet, and this even in the face of bitter opposition and threats from the student body as a 
whole. Those who might have profited by past experience, third-year men, were the prime instigators. However, their plans 
came to naught. A meeting was called and the Altamont chosen. These proceedings were noised abroad, even the details, 
but all their plots failed. Every thing was a success, a handsomely spread and elegantly served table, dainty menus and 
enchanting music. For all of these, we are deeply indebted to Mr. Walton Wood and his fellow committee-men. Poor old 
fellow, they caught him ; but when you catch a fox, place him in a steel cage, else he soon gets away to his native heath. 
Such was the third-year men's fate, and Wood was in at the finish, presiding with all the grace of a Southern gentleman. In 

the wee sma' hours, we wended our way home, each feeling- 

Let us hope a custom has been established which from 
now on will prevail. It has brought us in closer, warmer contact and already the good can be seen. A bond of sympathy 
and feeling has been established, which year by year will become stronger and exist long after our voyage as a student has 
been completed. As the year draws to a close, I must not forget to speak of our scientific agriculturists, Pierce, Thomas, 
H. D. Walker, J. H., and Travers. With such operators in the market cotton would advance 3^ cent per pound. Those 
who sit in the seats of the exalted will surely fall, and such was the fate of .the Fresh. Since the Fresh have been instructed 
on place and respectful times to hold meetings, they are improving ; but still they roost high. Every one knows what the 
Estachian tube is, and when Dr. Winslow treats us to an alphabetically arranged paper, we go up against it. 

The voyage is nearly over. In a short while we will again come up against danger signals ; but this time it will be a 
rocky coast and a deep driving fog. Let us hope, however, that with careful steering our precious ship may reach port safe 
and sound, and with the casting of anchor there will be no maimed tars aboard.

Milk famine, half fed, 

Starvation, he's dead— a Freshman. 

IT IS scarcely expected that a Class, which can count only four months since its formation, could boast of many deeds of 
any especial historical interest, and the Freshman Class of the present is no exception. It has been neither better nor 
worse than the average, but has endeavored, in all things, to keep within the happy medium, wherein is neither publicity 
nor obscurity. This disposition is due, no doubt, not so much to any lack of strength, both mental and otherwise, as to a 
very natural deference to the upper Classes, therefore it would be very unjust, as well as unwise, to pass judgment at this 
early period in their course. Thus far, at any rate, there have been no deeds of excellence, either in the lecture halls or on 
the athletic field, and the History of the Class might be written in one sentence : " In October they came and until January 
they have existed." 

Quite early in the session, the Class met, elected temporary officers and formed itself into a thoroughly legislative 
body, for the purpose of bringing to a final issue a matter, not only of national interest, but also of especial moment to this 
particular Class, viz : The Race Question. This discussion resulted, in the course of a very short time, in the withdrawal of 
one of the original members of the Class, and as if, having shown their thorough competence to deal with matters of State, 
the Freshmen ceased their legislative enactments, and became merely a defensive organization to resist the ever-threatening 
attacks of the Sophomores. They have been successful in this, thanks as much to the fact that the Sophs have been kept 

busy with more interesting affairs, as to any prowess manifested by the Freshmen. Of course, some of them, who, contrary 
to one of the most sacred customs of the University, attempted to push themselves too near the front in the Chemical or 
Anatomical Halls, were compelled to suffer the bumps and bruises, necessary to being "passed up," and one of the Class, 
not a medical, however, became for a short time the unwilling patient of a few upper Classmen, who seemed to have great 
confidence in Hydrotheraphy as an antipyretic, and who could not lose this chance of trying an experiment on such a 
"warm member" as Jamaica. Needless to say, the treatment was entirely successful, and the temperature of at least one of 
the Indies was decidedly reduced. 

The Class now numbers eighty men, drawn from many States of the Union. The North, South, East and West, each 
have representatives, and since they have no past failures over which to grieve, they can look forward, with some degree of 
hopefulness, to a career of success and, we hope, of pleasure. 

May the Spring of 1903 see the graduation of a Class which will not only do honor to the University of Maryland, 
but which will also be an addition to the Profession, in a deeper sense than mere numbers.

The Banquet at the Altamont Hotel. 

(With numerous and most 

The toast-master of the evening sat at Catonsville, 
There was a lack of comrades cheering, and the lad felt strangely ill; 
But a cabby stood beside him, while his formed hopes ebbed away; 
And bent, with pitying glances, to hear what he might say. 
The sorry Sophie faltered, as he sadly lowered his head, 
And he said: " I'll never see my own — my Sophomore spread; 
Take a message and a token to those comrades loved so well, 
For I am due at the banquet at the Altamont Hotel." 

Tell my classmates and companions, when they meet, so hushed 

and still; 
To hear the mournfui story of my drive to Catonsville. 
That I fought the battle bravely, but I realized I'd struck 
A proposition far too hard in which to hope for luck. 
For 'mid those howling Indians, were some, grown old in scraps; 
I'll bet my hat they'd played that game, a time or two— perhaps. 
And I knew I'd seen my finish, when I heard those Juniors yell, 
And that I'd miss the banquet at the Altamont Hotel. 

humble apologies to Mrs. Norton.) 

Tell the president that the other Sophs shall be with him for the soup, 

That I was but a truant bird, and so I flew de coop. 

Tell him not to think about that dough the Juniors pinched. 

It was a cruel trick, I know, and I'd like to see them lynched. 

And my heart grows fierce with anger, at what they did to us, 

And I'd like to face the whole of them, and then commence to cuss. 

Oh! those beastly thieving Juniors, I wish they were in — , well — 

For they massacred our banquet at the Altamont Hotel. 

There's another, not a classmate, at that joint on Eutaw Place; 

Ah, me! to think I never more shall see his smiling face. 

I mean the waiter— don't you know — the man who brings the booze. 

Oh! think of all those toasts of mine, which now the boys must loose. 

And the champagne, how I love it, too well for idle scorning. 

Oh, friend! I fear the lighest heart makes, sometime, heaviest 

I can hear the songs they are singing, I can hear the chorus swell; 
Throught the pleasant dining-room at the Altamont Hotel. 

His voice grew faint and hoarser; his grasp was childish weak. 

He thought about that booze he'd missed; he sighed and ceased to 

The cabby bent to lift him, but he lay like some one dead. 
His thoughts had been too much for him, and his reason now had fled . 
And the soft moon rose up slowly, and all the starry host, 
And smiled upon that toaster, who never got to toast. 
And far out in the distance, there chimed a midnight bell, 
But this Sophie missed his banquet at the Altamont Hotel. 

Theory of Evolution. 

Once I was an amoeba, 
A proto plasmic cell, 
I had a little nucleus, 
And that I loved right well. 

Now, I am a man,

I miss thee every hour. 


Report of the Dean of the University of Maryland, for the Year I 999* 

To the Faculty of Physic : 

Gentlemen: — It gives me great pleasure to announce to you the completion of the Hospital for Students, for the 
purpose of treating the diseases peculiar to students. 

I have placed in the body of my report a synopsis of the treatment in certain typical cases, which will show the benefit 
of treatment in these diseases, for which so little has, up to this time, been done. 

Case, No. i. H. L., age 24 (Medical student.) Admitted January 1st, suffering from complete loss of appetite. 
Patient states that he has been unable to eat since the 25th of December. Has had attacks of nausea, but has been unable 
to raise anything but the devil. Pulse, normal. Respiration, alcoholic. 

Patient was ordered to attend one of Prof. Miles' lectures on the " Mechanism of Swallowing," he states that his 
appetite was much improved, and on leaving he was able to eat a whole mince pie. He was ordered to another lecture on 

January 10th. Patient much improved. Can eat boarding-house hash with avidity. Has been 
compelled to leave his boarding-house as the landlady refuses to keep him any longer. 

January 12th. Discharged. Cured. 

Case, No. 2. A. S. S.. age 32. (Medical student.) Patient admitted January 3d, complaining 
of Insomnia. 

One lecture on the " Brachial Plexus, and the bones of the Cranium," by Prof. Winslow, was 

Patient states that he fell asleep ten minutes after entering, and awoke 
five minutes before the close of the lecture. Was able to kick the seat in 
front of him and to put on his hat. 

January 10th. Discharged. Cured. 

Case, No. 3. N. G., age 22. (Medical student.) Patient complains °S 
of lapse of memory and inability to articulate. This only comes on, on = =r^ 
special occasions. Patient states that when his name is called in a " quiz," JIZ 
he becomes unable to answer, and thus gives a false impression to his ^H 


Noncompos mentis was suspected, and he was ordered to the University Hospital, for diagnosis by the fourth year 
class. They found him suffering from a compound fracture of the Humerus, the Bubonic Plague, and Acromegalia. They 
made preparations for a laparotomy, but the patient escaping through the back window, an expectant plan of treatment was 
adopted as follows : 

R. Anatomy Grayae, hours ii. 

Practicum Medicinae, hours iss. 
Chemisteri, hours ii. 

M. Sig. To be taken daily. 

With these three examples, which will be sufficient to show the purpose of the Hospital, I will close my report. 

Very respectfully, 

The Dean. 

I Don't Want to Play in Your Yard. 

(With Apologies to the Author of that Pathetic Ballad.) 

Once little Paulie G. wanted to play ball, 

But his yard wasn't large enough, so he couldn't play ball at all. 

Next door the nurses' yard, is quite large they say. 

So he said: " I'll climb o'er the fence and in that yard I'll play." 

Up the fence he went, shinning until he'd reached the top, 

Was just about to jump over and land with a flop. 

But Dr. Spruill was standing with eyes awful red; 

So Paul sat there upon the fence, and to the Doctor said. 

I don't want to play in your yard; 

I'm on to your song and dance. 

I wouldn't come down there for a dollar; 

I think too much of my Hospital chance. 

I'll wait some day till you are dead and gone; 

'Till then I'll stay away, said he, 

I-'or if I came down in your yard, 

You wouldn't do a thing to me.

A Tragedy in Several Acts. 

Scene — The " Bowery." 


Ben — Please, Mr. Officer, do let me go! 
Willie — Please, Mr. Officer, don't shake me so! 
Ben — Please, Mr. Officer, I didn't, I swear! 
Willie — Please, Mr. Officer, I live right here! 

Time — For Another Drink. 

Poor little Willie! Poor little Ben! 
Out for a jag time — just like big men. 
1.30 A. M. — cake-walking then — 
Ring up Patrol Wagon — corner of Penn. 

Up at the window — Mary, a-crying! 

Up round the corner — Dutchie, a-flying! 

Up in his bed-room, Rhodie, a-spying! 

Then — up at the Station-house — Bennie, a-lying! 

Scene 2 — Examination before bald-headed Official, attired in dirty cuffs and a kindly smile. 

Official— What are you doing, in that old hat ? 

What are you doing, dressed up like that? 
What are you doing, out at this hour ? 
Why is your clothing all covered in flour ? 

Willie — We'd been to a dinner at Eutaw Place; 
We'd been invited — (Ben, makes a face, 
And interrupting, and Willie correcting), 
Please, Mr. Officer, we've been dissecting-. 

Official — Now, stop that yarning, for it's no good! 

You are the boys that kipnapped Mr. Wood. 
Rumpled his new pants and crumpled his collar. 
And kindly relieved him of every darned dollar. 

Willie — What are we charged with, Mr. Officer ? 
Official — Dancing, cake-walking, disturbing the peace. 
Oh! stuttered Willie, shaking with fright. 
Will we be locked up, the rest of the night ? 

Official— Will you remain here ? I'm afraid so. 
Unless you're able to put up the dough. 
Then, Willie, weeping, said: Oh! what a shock ? 
I have a watch and chain, but it's in hock. 

Then said the officer: Though you're to blame; 
Yet. /can't blame you, for I have done the same 
When I was young — but, still, you must remember 
That a pawn-ticket is not legal tender. 

As they were standing there, looking forlorn, 
Will, in a sweater, Ben, with his coat torn; 
Quaking and looking the picture of woe, 
Their friends arrived there — and put up the dough. 


A Student's Dream and the Reality. 

Reclining in an easy chair, 

With pillows round him piled. 
A student sits and dreams away, 

And thus his time beguiled ; 
A cigarette, of course, he has, 

To help his thoughts along, 
And as he smokes he hums away 

Brief fragments of a song ; 
He thinks, this youthful student, 

An M. D. soon I'll be, 
And Oh ! what wonders I will do 

When I get my degree ; 
I'll never walk, but always ride, 

And in a carriage, too, 
With piles of money laid aside 

And no more work to do. 

One year has passed, and now he thinks 

The dreamer was insane, 
And wishes he could get a chance 

To cause a patient pain ; 
He would be truly thaukful 

To have just one a day, 
And what is more important, 

That the patient thinks to pay ; 
He has never yet been able 

To ride about in style, 
Debarred of horse and stable, 

He's walked it many a m ile ; 
Now he has learned a lesson, 

As students ever learn. 
That all such fairy castles 

Will fall at every turn ; 
And waking from his stupor 

Sees, ere it is too late, 
Success can only come to those 

Who reallv work and wait. 


Dr. Lamier-Mv. W. A man is found on the street in an unconscious condition. From what might he be suffering? 
Mr. W. — Gives a good many conditions. ' 

Little Smith— Is suddenly inspired with what he thinks a brilliant idea and yells out "Eclampsia." 

» How one thing brings up another," said a lady, absorbed in pleasing retrospection. "Yes," replied the practical 
■ Ur - C r, "an emetic for instance." 

Mt. W j-.—What is the nerve supply of the Clitoris ? 

Mr. W. — The nerve supply is the " Dorsal Artery." 

Quoth the Ass.—Thtt Lion's hide no longer fools anybody, what I need is a sheep skin. 
Is this the reason the " Ass " attends College in such large numbers ? 

Dr - L. — Mr. L. What is the skin coccus called ? 
Mr. L. — Staphylococcus Epididymis Albus. 

A man swallowed a dime and went to the Doctor, who made him cough up two dollars. 

Radical Cure. 

In the public schools of some cities, measures are taken, by presumably competent officials, to test the children's 
eyesight, upon the assumption-often too well founded— that the parents are not sufficiently watchful in that important 
particular. A little boy came home one day, soon after the fall term of school had opened, with the following note duly 
signed by the principal: "Mr. Judkins : Dear Sir-It becomes my duty to inform you that your son shows decided 
indications of astigmatism, and his case is one that should be attended to without delay." The father sent the following 
answer the next day : » Mr. Kershaw : Dear Sir— Whip it out of him.— Yours truly, Hiram Judkins " 

They sawed off his arms and his legs, 
The)' took out his jugular vein; 
They put fancy frills on his lungs, 
And they deftly extracted his brain. 

A Triumph of Surgical Skill. 

'Twas a triumph of surgical skill, 
That was never heard of till then; 
'Twas the subject of lectures before 
Conventions of Medical men. 

The news of this wonderful thing, 

Was heralded far and wide ; 

But as for the patient, there's nothing to say, 

Except, of course, that he died. 

The Doctor's Wooing. 

'Tis said a very young M. D. 

Once loved a maiden fair to see, 
And thus the doctor, very young, 
The lovely maiden's praises sung. 

How enchanting is thine azure iris, 
Shining 'gainst the white scleroid ; 

Gracefully attached the tendon 
Of thy stero-cleido-mastoid. 

Capillary hyperemia — 

Of its tints the name is legion, 

So pellucid is thy epidermis 
In the oro-buceal region. 

Of its glorious tints, the sunset's 

But a feeble imitator ; 
Oh, my darling do but let me 

Osculate your buccinator. 

Than thy oral epithelium, 

Naught this side of heaven is sweeter ; 
Graceful are the sinuous outlines 

Of thy beautiful masseter. 

Then thy zygomticus major 

Gives me joy almost divine 
Whene'er it and thy risorium 

In active league combine. 

Empty is my pericardium. 

Of its tenant thou bereft it ; 
Auricle and ventricle 

And aota's base have left it. 

Yet I wish not to regain them, 

No wish have I but that you 
Will take also my peritoneum 

And my encephalou too 

Give me hut thy sweet phalanges, 
Thy metacarpals press to mine, 

My cerebrum, cerebullum, 

Ma\ they e'er be slave to thine. 

Precious darling, come auscult me, 
Thy concha 'gainst my thorax pressed 

On my blest manubrium ever 
May thy precious cranium rest. 

The doctor ne'er has ceased to wonder 

Why she bade him go to thunder.

Class J 900. 

History-Class 1900. 

The shades of night were falling fast, 
As through the city street there passed, 
A youth, who now shall be described, 
Whose every manner did enscribe — 
The Freshman. 

His trousers were a little wide, 
And just a trifle short beside; 
Yet, onward on his way he dashed, 
While on our startled vision flashed. 
The Freshman. 

In happy groups, he saw the bright 
And happy Seniors, left and right; 
And wondered why it was not he, 
Instead of them that thus should be 
The Junior. 

Try hard to pass, he heard it said, 
And in your class be at the head. 
The old "exams" are hard, you know, 
Until you've passed, 'twas always so. 
The Junior. 

The crowded street he quickly passed, 
And of a student, then he asked, 
Where he, the worthy Dean, might see, 
To pay matriculation fee. 
The Freshman. 

Beware the therapy " exam." 
Beware the phisiol'gy man. 
This was the Seniors' last good-night, 
And he to all was lost from sight. 
The Junior. 

It scarcely seemed he had bea;un, 
When lo; his Freshman year was done. 
And here once more he comes in view, 
To start the year of number two. 
The Junior. 

Once more he now appears to view, 
That worthy person tried and true, 
With all his branches safely passed, 
To start the year which is his last. 
The Senior. 

And now as the Freshman days are o'er, 
None in the school, he thinks knows more, 
And thinks it strange the Faculty, 
Does not on him confer " M. D." 
The Junior. 

All year he worked and did his best, 
With bridges, crowns, and all the rest. 
No task they gave him could avail. 
To make him think that he might fail. 
The Senior. 

And soon; ah! soon, the end draws near, 
The time long looked for now is here, 
" Commencement Day," its joy and pain. 
For he shall never be again — 
The Senior. 


WITH due apology to Mr. Longfellow, the above is submitted, as no meter is so well suited to the spirit of the Class 
of 1900 as "Excelsior." "The history of a nation is but the history of individuals," has been said, and the same 
is true of a class history, but to give a history of the doings of each member would be entirely too personal, so we 
will write of the class as though it were but an individual. 

As for size, he is about the average, not being able to boast of being the greatest (except in ability) that ever graduated, 
but he must answer for the doings of fifty-seven boys, besides a Mann and a Haff. In disposition he is sometimes Peavy 
and looks Grom, but, as a rule, he impresses one with the idea that he is the Dean, but, perchance, when next you see him 
he is so covered with plaster that you think him a Miller. His Harris (hair is) Brown, and as for strength he is noted for 
being Armstrong, which a great many think is particularly essential to be a good dentist. To see him sometimes you might 
think him a Branch off the old tree, but if you investigate you will see he more closely resembles a Bush. You can easily 
emBARRASS him, especially, if it be in his freshman year ; a great many wonder at his being so well dressed, but how could it 
be otherwise when he has always had two Taylors as well as Browning, King & Co. in the class. 

How well do we remember when, as a freshman, he came to the college, how every lecture he attended and how 
persistently he followed the worthy demonstrator of vulcanite work, that he, too, might be able to do all things with neatness 
and despatch. 

It was during this, his freshman year, that he was especially brought to the notice of the Faculty as well as the 
profession at large, for while some had before this opposed the " State Board," he defied them to their face, thus, showing to 
all that whatever he thought to be right would have his earnest support. 

As a junior, of course, he was by far the wisest person in the college, that is, until examination drew near, when from 
some cause or other he seemed to lose the self-confidence which had been so noticeable, until, at last, he entered the 
examination hall, with fear and trembling, similar to that he experienced when extracting his first tooth or doing his first 
work in the infirmary, but this was not from lack of knowledge, as the other had been, for when it was all over we find he 
has passed creditably and is now a worthy senior, ready to take his place daily (?) in the infirmary to do dental operations 
without (or with) pain. 

He had become so popular by the end of his junior year that " The National Association " interfered in his behalf and 
caused the Faculty to add another month to the term without extra charge. 

Socially he was well known (by the police) all over the city and upheld the well-earned reputation of the student 
wherever he went. 

He was especially popular with the young ladies, who saw at once that he was a true H(e)ARTMAN, and regardless 
what her query might be, he always endeavored to enLiGHTNER, but how brief was his stay, when observed from her point of 
observation, for it seemed but a few short days since she smiled on him as the wily freshman, and now, alas, she must once 
more join the ranks of " The College Widow." 


As for athletics, he was always in the lead, and when at hockey, someone was needed to save the game, he (Sumner) 
was always on hand, and no one was known to return from a football game with a blacker eye (Jackson) nor with a face more 
artistically scratched than he (Paget). He never had a mascot, but a Linscott did just as well. 

There is one place where he will be missed more than one might suppose. At church ? Oh no, for when he went 
there he always took a back seat, the same as he did at theatre. I refer to his boarding-house, where they always used 
Rogers silverware. Long will he be remembered there, for he was longest in coming to meals, longest at the table and longest 
in paying his bill and some few may be longing for his return to pay a long deficiency, for when Preston account of his he 
would kindly ask them to Bucher (book her.) 

When the question of graduating costume arose, he said "the full Dressel do for me." But the majority said 
" McCann put us down for caps and gowns, and we will all Halpern (help earn) the right for him to wear the same." 

It beREAVES me that I cannot mention all the members of the class, but their names will not permit, so now I am 
Dunn lest you begin to think this Stale(v), but all of this can be vouched for, "by (Ii)Rvans." 

An Epitaph. 

A worthy dentist rests beneath 
This hi^hdieaped, grassy mound ; 

True man was he, although his teeth 
Full ofteu false were found. 

His speech was frequent and most free, 
Right seldom would he pause, 

Although a master hand was he 
At holding others' jaws. 

All obstacles he did despise 
And often would he brag 

He rather liked, than otherwise, 
To run against a sua** 

He owned no family or clan, 
But gave all satisfaction, 

For all agreed he was a man 
Of excellent extraction. 

Much suffering did he assuage, 

His patients lost each pang, 
Though erst the throbbing tooth might rage, 

As the v his doorbell rantr. 

He died without a sob or groan, 

He lived in decent gravity, 
And now, beneath this mossy stone, 

lie's fdling his last cavity. — Chicago Record.

My Boy Bill. 

I went down to the city last week, you know, 

To see my young son, Bill; 
You see, he's larnin' the dentist's trade, 

Larnin' to pull an' to grind an' to fill. 

It beats the band, how they do in these days 

When a feller's jaw is in pain, 
They'll put him to sleep and steel out his teeth, 

Afore he awakens again. 

When they find a tooth that seems pretty good, 
And they see they can save the thing; 

They start to work with a sewin' machine 
An' a peggin' awl fast to a string. 

The}- bore an' drill an' cut away 

Till they git a durned big hole, 
Then go to work and plaster it up 

With paste and silver an' gold. 

An' dern my skin, this is jest what I saw 

When I was a callin' on Bill, 
He give a feller a new lot of teeth, 

Jest as sure as I live on this hill. 

His jaws were as bare as a new born babe's, 

With not a tooth in his head; 
So they fixed him out in fust-class shape, 

So's he can chew bacon an' bread. 

Yes, Bill is gettin' along quite fine 
At a larnin' the dentist man's trade; 

Fer they tell me he is well onter his job, 
An' can lay the old profs, in the shade. 

Yes, Bill likes to live in the city. 

He don't mount to shucks on the farm; 

As his dad can beat him a raisin' corn, 
Or at weanin' calves in the barn. 

Prophecy — Class 1 /OCL 

AFTER having been present at our 19th Annual Commencement, I, as well as many others of my class, started on my 
homeward journey. I had a long journey before me, therefore, settled myself comfortably in the 12.40 A. M. 

train for the North. I dozed comfortably for sometime, then, I was suddenly awakened by a terrible shock ( 
immediately afterwards all was oblivion. It seemed as though there was a terrible rendering asunder and then my spirit 
seemed to drift upward and the future of all the world seemed to be thrown open before my gaze. 

Just having left my classmates, it is natural that they should appear first on the scene. Farnsworth, who, after 
returning home, will capture the hearts of three young ladies, loving each one equally, and, lest he lose one, he will move to 
Utah. Will be the father of fifty children. 

Peavy will wander about alone for a long time and then collect himself together and sell toothache drops for a living. 

Basehoar will try seventeen State boards, fail each time and, finally, become a prosperons farmer. 

Hurt will become the proprietor of a notorious house, with three balls before the door. Gambling will bring him to 

Linscott will lose his life endeavoring to christianize the heathens of the Philippines. 

Boudier will become one of the most prominent dental surgeons of this country, people will come from all over the 
world to him (he received gold medal)! 

Ingelskercher will steal some diamonds from his uncle, and, being detected, will be sentenced to five years in the 
penitentiary; after coming out, will lead a criminal life, until, finally, he is killed while trying to rob the store of W. W. 
Taylor, who will become a prominent merchant in the south. 

Dunn will devote his time trying to discover a hair tonic. He will, finally, be successful, and will raise a suit of hair 
that will be the pride of his life. 

Arnold will fail at dentistry, but, after working for a long time at shoeing horses, will become the proprietor of a little 
smith)- of his own. 

Earman will become more and more taken up with soft gold, and he will, finally, become an inmate of the insane 
asylum, thinking everything he touches turns to gold. 

Franklin will become a very famous sporting man and promoter of international horse racing. 

Preston will invent an electrical apparatus that will save I limmler the trouble of breathing, as even this will become too 
much of an effort for him. 

Brown and Bush will become prominent cattle raisers, their farm covering the entire State of Nevada. 

Stehley will fail in both medicine and dentistry and will become a moonshiner in the mountains of West Virginia. 

Hammond, O'Donoghue, Holbrook and Taylor have left the ranks of single blessedness and have joined with the 
benedicts of thousands, aye, millions of those who have gone before. These men, in order to support their wives, will make a 
success in dentistry and bestow credit upon their old Alma Mater. 

McCann will become an anarchist and tramp all over the country, preaching the theory of social equality, and, finally, 
be lynched for stealing a horse. 

Our Mann and a Hoffwill become a policeman on the Baltimore police force, having found the practice of dentistry 
very unprofitable. 

Lightner will be running Two Taverns in Pennsylvania. 

Reeves will become the head clerk in a ladies' furnishing establishment. 

Paget will become the principal of a little girls' kindergarten. 

Evans will become disgusted with the wickedness of the world and the practice of dentistry and become a priest. 

Douglass, as an actor, will astonish the world with his new rendering of Shakespeare's characters. 

Conrad will run away with another man's wife, and, being overtaken, will be so badly frightened that in the future he 
will live the life of a hermit in the Rocky Mountains. 

Halpern will, in the course of many years, be demonstrator in the laboratory of the University of Maryland. 

Rogers, Armstrong, Jackson, Browning, Oberdick, King, Harris, Allison, Grom, Watkins, Tillotson, Sumner, Osteen, 
Booker, Dressel, Dean, Martin, Dr. Leonard, Miller and Wilson, all of whom we speak most highly, will, in years to come, 
be demonstrators in the infirmary of the University of Maryland. 

Our father, Linthicum, whom we most highly esteem, will have success in the practice of his chosen profession. 

I tried to see the future of others, but my mind became a blank, and, finally, everything became dark and I felt myself 
drifting away, then it seemed as if my spirit entered into a long and terrible struggle. Exhaustion and a feeling of victory 
finally predominated, and then I heard a confusion of noises, which finally resolved themselves into voices. I opened my 
eyes and found myself surrounded by strange faces. Eventually, I recovered and found that I had been in a railroad collision 
on the New York Central.

" Now this is the muscle." the Professor said, 
" That you use when you hear your mother-in-law dead, 
" Levator Anguli Oris it is you know. 

And in acting it pulls up your mouth just so ; " 
And turning around, with his crayon in hand, 
With a motion such as only artists command, 
He drew for the eyes of the students to view 
The picture which now we're pleased to show you ; 
Now the work of an artist, all understand, 
When it comes before critics always is scanned, 
So this portrait, which is with us in question, 
Was judged by the lecturer on digestion ; 
When his thoughts were expressed, everyone smiled, 
For he thought it the work of some Freshman wild, 
But when his mistake he had fully discovered, 
His wrath for the student he quickly smothered ; 
Now the lectures may come and lectures may go, 
But illustrated ones are the best we all know, 
And especially so is it true in a case 
Where art is displayed as it is in this face.

History — Class 1 902* 

THE career of the Junior Class has, as yet, been but brief. It was born in the balmy days of October, rocked in the 
cradle of Robinson's Elementary Law, afterwards awed by the blood of Criminal Law and then sheltered by the loving 
hand of Domestic Relations. 

Up until the dreaded days which were to test the capabilities of our members, there was very little to break the 
monotony of University life. Occasionally, during lecture, one of our members, who had, apparently, just awoke from a 
nap, would yell out, "Judge!" After hearing the well-known "Well, what is it?" he would, in mournful tones, relate 
something he had been dreaming, as happening in some far off place, and ask whether it would be a crime or tort, or whether 
the jury would bring in a verdict of guilty or not guilty. Another, who, perhaps, was thinking of his sweetheart, would ask 
how regularly a person could go to see a girl without being liable in breach of promise suit? 

Various other questions of similar purport were asked, to all of which the Judge, good naturedly, reminded the class 
that, as they were only Juniors, allowances should be made. 

One of our thrifty and energetic members conceived the idea of publishing examination questions, and by his incessant 
advertising led many of the class to believe that the only way to pass the examination was to secure old questions from him 
and study them. 

The Juniors were given a pressing invitation to attend the Senate and become members. Several ventured within its 
sacred walls, some of whom, being disgusted with the apparent wrangling of the member, left, swearing by all that is good and 
bad that their bodies should never darken the Senate door, nor their minds illumine its interior as long as they had any ; 
while others, of a braver nature, had their names enrolled, and now stand side by side with the distinguished Intermediates 
and honored Seniors in battling for prominence among the renowned public speakers of the age. 

But, alas, from the honored and highly respected Secretary of the Faculty came the command, prepare for examination; 
member consulted member, old examination questions were purchased and studied, quizzes were organized and everything 
possible was done to make the contest successful. Study was on the boom. 

Finally, the day of destiny arrived, and all, like soldiers of old, faced the foe ; honor was the watchword, and the 
"ORDERS" were to fail honorably rather than win fraudently. 

After the contest was over and the result announced, it was found that some had blundered, and that the fair face of 
the infant class had received a few scars, but, we trust, that all those who tripped will brace up, and that the name of the 
Class of 1902 may shine out as that of the model class of the Twentieth Century.

History— Class 1 90 1 ♦ 

A FEW familiar faces were missed upon the assembling of the class in October, and those who are reminiscent amongst 
us could not fail to recall the Commencement Race by Holmes. The young colts who dropped out never fairly 
started in the handicap ; indeed, did hardly more than weighed in, and if the starting flag — alas, even now far distant 
for many of us — did not frighten, the white feather may have. 

A heavy premium was put on 1901, as a way of relish (?), during the first term of the session, and the risk was, 
materially, increased. We were most unfortunate in the grand mix up by the Faculty, and if anyone does not believe the 
writer's sincerity, let such a one ask some of the "flunks." There was no such thing as statu quo, as a little junior and a little 
senior work was thrust upon us. 

But in the commingling with the Freshies we have a few pleasant recollections, and we, as Intermediates, cannot fail to 
note with disdain the pranks of this class. One instance will suffice. In a quiz upon criminal law, our lecturer asked a 

student the following : " Suppose, Mr. , you should go to the Zoo and steal a lion, would this be larceny or 

embezzlement?'' Now, imagine our chagrin and surprise when that youth responded, "neither, your honor, it would be 
suicide." One could have heard a pin drop in that lecture hall.* 

Another interesting subject with us this year is Railroad and Municipal Law, and there is no question, but, that upon 
the completion of this course, every Intermediate will know how to run a street car. The rule is to ring once to stop and 
twice to go ahead ; moreover, we will know the legal way of beating passengers, and that sometimes it is illegal to collect two 
fares, and therein what is apparent scope. Thank heavens, we have shaken the real estate off our feet. 

If the thought of becoming a Senior next session amounts to much, such expectation is o'ershadowed and eclipsed by 
the vim, the exuberance, the delight, aye, the inestimable pleasure with which we attended a certain lecture this year. 
Cicero may have hurled his philippics, Demosthenes stirred thousands by his eloquence, Webster swayed the opinions of 

men, Cyrano fanned the embers of love, but to Mr. , aye, to Mr. , rests the credit in the fin de siccle of causing 

wall to re-echo to wall the duicet intonations and fiery fulmination of his imagination.

History — Class 1 900* 

IT WAS towards the close of the afternoon, on the fourth day of October, one thousand eight hundred and ninety-seven, 
when the sun, after a glorious but solitary course, was about to sink in the ocean of darkness, that a motley crowd of 
lawyers-to-be knocked for admission at the portals of the University of Maryland. 

If I had time and space to digress from the truth of this History and extol the talents and merits of this conglomeration, 
I could easily compile volumes equal in size to the Maryland Reports, but being allowed only a week within which to record 
their annals, we have to content ourselves with a mere composite sketch, cast, as it were, upon a back-ground of memories 
and dreams, and " resist the temptation to wander in those flowery fields." 

The first year of our University life passed away pleasantly. Though forced to climb " the rugged mountains of 
Elementary Law, the desolate paths of Domestic Relations, the deep ravines of Personal Property, the narrow defiles of 
Contracts and (fertile fields of Real Estate?)" the majority of the Class, with an ambition greater than Caesar's and 
worthier than Napoleon's, put their shoulders to the wheel, met the exams boldly and emerged more than victors. When we 
returned in Fall, as ex-Juniors with countenances tanned, with the reminiscences of a delightful summer, and with hearts 
throbbing in happy anticipation of coming victories and glory, we realized with sadness, that many of our boon companions 
had gone out into the hard, cruel world to face its buffetings and cares. But soon these thoughts were stowed away on gilded 
nails, and eighty hearts thought themselves on the road to success, and one hundred and sixty ears were eagerly listening to 
hear Mr. Poe describe how Theodosia Trueheart won her case by securing Charles Champion, a recent graduate of the 
University of Maryland, for her attorney. 

And youthful minds were stirred still more at Gans' dissertation on " How Banks and Moneys Could be Robbed 
Without Incrimination." 

The months glided swiftly by and found us face to face with that uncertain instrument of torture, the January 
examination. When the clouds that accompanied this unwelcome visitor had dispersed, we found our ranks somewhat 
thinned ; no doubt the allurements of the outside world had enticed some students from their seats below the heat of the 
burning lamp. The concluding picture of the book tells the tale. 

The second term began, our new lecturer, Joseph C. France, escorted us through the maze of " Ultra Vires," and left 
us to infer that "Law is a good thing, provided man uses it lawfully." "Clouds on Title" had to be carefully scanned, 
for last year's reports on Cherry Grove had convinced most members of our Class " that learning without thought 
is love's labor lost." 


I >n the path towards the Temple of Fame, we regaled ourselves with a long draught from the stream that oozes from 
the pleasant fountain of Mercantile Law, before attempting to plunge into the depths of Bills and Notes. 

How swiftly that last vacation passed, and how soon October sunsets found seventy, the survival of the fittest, ready 
fur the grand finale. 

Much to our regret, we found that Father Time had wrought great changes in our curriculum. Legal Ethics, 
Interpretation, Law with her anomalous conflicts, and all the Damages that Poe might do, had been added to our course of 
study. And when the time came to be initiated into the inexplicable mysteries of the "Judges' English," as evidenced by that 
elegance of diction, we were startled indeed, out of our narrowness of ways, in very admiration at the unassuming manner of 
the man who could say " Hague," and still deign to lecture to ordinary mortals. 

A casual survey of our present Class seems to reveal many a future contest, ere the triumphant victor will carry off 
hi> spoils in the coming election. Even now out-croppings of political strategy can be clearly seen, upon which the shades 
of departed politicians would smile from beyond their stygian realms. 

As a Class, we rank high in the general excellence of our members. 1900 has furnished men of brawn for the 
University athletics, and before the present year rolls 'round some more of her sons will have, no doubt, become distinguished 
on gridiron, diamond and cinderpath. 

Thus, 'midst varying fortunes, have we pursued our way through three long, tedious years, and impatiently watched 
the ebbing and flowing tide of change, and often sighed and longed for that illustrious day to dawn, whose sun would set on 
all our labors done. 

Soon, too soon, perhaps, we must sever our connection with our beloved Alma Mater and esteemed Professors, and 
launch our crafts on the sea of active life. For three years we have toiled in common, but now the time has come when we 
must break all pleasantries and " sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish." 

Still, we will gather at times to clasp again the hands of friends, hear the old familiar tones, and with pleasure recall 
the day when we were happy, careless pupils, and will agree that our life at the University was a matter which, in times of 
disappointment, looms up with vivid brightness before our minds, and lures our thoughts from the cares of business to 
visions of other days and their delightful associations. 

Whether our crafts will safely land on the shores of success or be shattered on the shoals of difficulty, time alone can 
tell. If they sink, the fault is our own, for in no school can students expect more intelligent and faithful instruction than that 
which is received from that venerable body of men, who compose the Faculty of the Law Department of the University of 

As we part to follow different paths from the classic halls of our dear old 'Varsity, let us each resolve to 
carry only love for each other, veneration for our high and honorable profession, and profound respect for all our 
former Professors.

The Tobacco Chewing Club of the Faculty met at the hall of the new 
House of Representatives last night and adopted " Seal of North Caro- 
lina " as the official chew. How they do cling to legal phrases. 

The first smoker given by the late Senate, of happy memory, was, for 
a time, a howling success. Prominent amongst the many notables was 
"Irish," the lad who chases the duck for the medical students (Faculty?). 
His rendition of Seyboch's Nocturne in Celtic was specially appreciated, 
the sentiment in particular. The hoary Senators were to be compli- 
mented on the delicacy and promptness with which " Rough-house " 
was declared at an early hour in the entertainment. 

Rome was founded as a refugiiini peccatorum, and flourished and 
declined. It must be on the same principle that the new House of 
Representatives was organized, judging from the " Reform List " of its 

Messrs. Editors : 

Does not the "Oral Examination Act" impair the obligation of 

No. It is the exemplification of that guarantee in the bulwark of

Chapter I. Discusses the comparative advantage of bench and bar of 
early subscriptions and deferred payments. 

Chapter II. The propriety of delaying publication sixty days and the 
ease with which it may be done with inconvenience to none save 
editorial board. 

Chapter III. The necessity of having editors who will neglect exami- 
nations and postpone thesis and be ever ready to prepare material 
whenever the class decides to subscribe two-thirds of the sum required. 

Chapter IV. The affrontery sometimes required to excuse deferred 
payments. The art of shifting the burden of blame. 

Chapter V. A method of growing eloquent even when wrong. Self 
exculpation and wholesale incrimination. 

Chapter VI. The vote of censure. Never be afraid to propose it if 
anything may be gained thereby, especially on eve of election in uncer- 
tain contests, when you think it a popular measure. Napoleon had a 
Wellington, Balin a Bushnard and Bacon a Bumshell. 

This book would be cheap at any price, in fact, cheapness is its lead- 
ing characteristic. The Law Department aimed at cheapness first, last 
and at all times. To this end, with one or two exceptions, it secured a 
cheap editorial board, with a still cheaper business manager and cor- 
respondingly cheap contributors and cheap subscribers. 

We, therefore, commend it to the careful consideration of the Class 
of 1900 as a highly representative book.

Dinklespiel Visits the University* 

1D0UGHT py myself one da)-, I vould go town to dat Universingty of Marylant py, und see mein friendt Chon B. Boe. 
Chonny und I hat peen collitch chumps togedder, vay pack in der fifties, bud he doant tell der poys dot, down in der 
Law School, pecause id vould make him loog so oldt like dirty cents. Anyhow as I sed, I haddent seen him for sudch 
a long dime, I think I vould like to hear his schweed, mellodinus woice once again alretty, und so I go. 

I vas yoost going der door in, ven a young chentlemens mid glasses on der nose, valk up py me und say : " Ach mein 
friendt, how glat I vas alretty to saw you, you cannot imatchin mid yourself." Den shaking me mid der hant, bis I think I 
voult paralize myself, he gontinued : "Your face is very famininer, I forgot if I efer saw your again. Haf you any choice 

for der bresident of dis Class. I vould pe glat to haf you gonsider me a gandidate. My name is Chon T. ." " Holt 

on, mein friendt," I say, "I am nod a member of your Class." "No?" he answer inkviringly, "veil dot doant make me 
no never mind oud, yoost so you wote by me, aind it? " 

Bud now I see mein friendt Boe, who invides me der legchure room in, und I go. I dake a sead on der ride side, und 
dakc mein olt bibe oud for a schmoke. Der Class soon fill fills ub, und Chonny pegins his pow-wow mid der poys, who 

kvietly bud schurely fall off to schleeb, one py one, like der schparrows fall. After a vile, 
ven most of dose who caught a lade drain, came in, Mr. Weilo Brunop gomes in. I know 
his name pecause I seen id before, bud I alvays ged id mixed. Dere vere soundts like a 
gat grying und some dogs yodelling at der moon, vile Mr. Vhile I Burnup dakes his sead, 
und somepody yell " Hatsoff! " I neffer heard him called dot pefore, bud dey say he has a 
disease, und gant dake his hat off bis he sids down. Funny, aindt it? 

Und mein friendt, Cheorge Keck, gomes in also. I knowed it vas Cheorge, before I 
durn aroundt, for I hear him sing in dulcet, tender dones : " How you vouldt like to pe der 
icemans like? " Ya, I knowed id vas Cheorge. He sad down peside me und say ; " Hello 
Dinky, you aindt got some chewing tobacca in your patchamas, aindt it?" Vhile I was 
drying to ged some oud of my pistel bocket, I got hitt. I doant know how many dimes or 
in how many blaces. All dot I know vas dot it vas peanuts. Ach Gott, Louis, I dought 
der Beanut Drust hat busted. Cheorge tolt me aftervards dot id vas a habit dot der Peanut 
Gang hat. Dey buy peanuts py der bushel from der Dago, named Oscar, on Packer 
Schtreed, at gondract prices. Dot aindt der only gang dey haf in der Law Debartment

gotten schtockens, mid red flannel undervear. I couldt make an Alfred David by dot, as dey say in der Criminal Gort. 

Mr. Boe also hat a " quizz," I neffer saw one before, und so I think I vould vaid und see id. He calls oud der names, 
und only dose vat aint dere ged answered to py other fellers, und sudch names ! Dere vas a feller named Overdone, who 
schpelled his name like der boets — O'Done. Und a feller named Chutch, who looged more like a 'obster dan a chutch. 
Und Macfail, who neffer passed. Und Grumble, who had viskers like a goad. Und Polker El Skin und Oud Side Mitten. 
I dink der last two vas Eyetalians or Irish Turks, bud you gant broove it py me. 

Soon after the quizz begin, Chonny galled on me — Diedrich Dinklespiel — yoost oud of cursety he sed, pecause ve hat 
peen collitch chumps. Mein kvestion vas, " Vat is marritch ? " A failure, I say bromptly, 
und der hole krout, laff like tarn fules. " How does Plackstone define marritch ? " asks 
Chonny B. I hat him dis time, und I know it. Tro.ving oud mein chest und dalking in 
loud tones, I answer : " Marritch is a insane skeme py vitch a man underdakes to pay a 
voman's board for life." Chonny didn't say a vord, bud only dook a long drink of water. 
I could see he vas deeply touched. But dot tarn fule of a Class only laff again like krazy, 
und beat on der tables mid dere books und cheer like at a bolitical meeting. 

After der legschure, efferybody vent into der library Cheorge tolt me I bedder go 
too, as dere vas going to pe ruff-haus. I vent, of course. Der vas a tall feller sidding ! 
pack of a dable in frond of him, und hat der dable piled ub mid books und logs of vood. 
Pack in der gorner, some fellers vas blaying Olt Maids. I neffer knowed id vas sudtch an 
eggsiding game. Dey put money on der table, vitch Ceeorge sed vas for der vidder. By 
me by, somebody say loud, like " Cheas it ! here comes Schmood." I doant think Schmood 
liked Olt Maids ; anyhow somepoey grabbed der cards und everypody grabbed dot poor 
vidder-voman's money, und I am afraid dot money, vitch she vas going to puy coal mid. 
she voand git. I like to see young beoble amuse demselfes, especially ven id is for schweed 
charity's sake. Aindt dot so? Bud to tell you aboud der ruff-haus. 

Soon der band began to blay. Somebody sed id vouldt gost Si, 800 to bublish a bouk, 
und he ask dot each man pay S30 apiece. Dot schtarted id. Efferybody vant to schpeak at once. Der Chareman hit der 
table mid a plock of vood und holler " Order ! " und de more he holler, de more dey doant keep schtill. Den he knock one 
man down mid a glub. I vant to ged in it myself, bud Cheorge say dot is all right, as id vas only der ablication of der rule 
in Shelley's gase. Id didn't look like a rule to me ; it looked more like a baseball glub ; bud even if it vas a rule, all I gan 
say is dot I feel tarn sorry for Shelley. 

Den somebody vant to elect somebody else as Editor. Py dis time, all der plocks of vood hat given oud, und der 
Chareman vas pitching books at der members on der floor, vile three sargents-at-arms vas gaddering dem ub to be used again.

A Reverie. 

Here in this ancient Hall, 

I hear the voices hum; 
My thoughts go jumping backward, 

To when this school was young. 
The names sratched on the benches, 

Thoughts of the past recall, 
And brighten every portrait 

That hangs on memory's wall. 

Others work in the ice-house, 

This, too, indeed is tough; 
While they worked here, I know 

They had it hard enough. 
And some as gallant soldiers, 

Were in the recent war; 
Some are back, while others, 

Alas ! exist no more. 

Some students, who have worked here, 

Have gained both wealth and fame; 
While some who worked as hard, 

Have neither gold nor name. 
Some have to farms returned, 

And some are on the force; 
Sue h thoughts as these are apt 

To fill us with remorse. 

And some are working on the cars; 

I know this to be true. 
While some we've had a dozen years 

And still they can't get through. 
A few are in the State's employ, 

And some dig up the streets. 
In all your walks and journeys, 

Our students you will meet. 


The Cause Celebre of the Qass of 1900. 


The Cause Celebre of the Class of 1/OCh 

AH ! WELL do I remember, it was in the bleak November, and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the 
floor, when there assembled in the library hall, to try a cause based on an alleged violation of the Sunday liquor law, 
Messrs. Smoot, Dimarko, Pogorelskin and Seidman, et al. 

Brief reference must here be made to the galaxy of legal incandescents who figured in the trial. Antonio Dimarko is 
the proud possessor of the non-de-plume of Count, derived from an ancestor, whom Tony fondly imagines was a feudal Lord, 
owning vast baronial shifting uses, which, having shifted about so much, at last shifted the Dimarko posterity to America. 
Smoot goes by the appellation of " Old Quizzical," a mark of respect contiguous to his phsiognomy. Pogorelskin and 
Seidman both hail from the rugged steppes of Russia, where the climate was not over conducive to the acquirements of 
knowledge, nor the retention. of a complete complement of epidermis. With this brief biography of our heroes, we will 
continue, rather narrative of the case. 

Judge Ritchie was holding court, while the spectators considered it their bounden duty to act as bailiffs. Promptly at 
8 o'clock the Court intimated that it was ready for business, and Dimarko, rudely awakened from a sweet semi-tropical 
lethargy, which was heavily laden with the quasi-remi-demi exotic breath of macaroni and sunny Italy, the land of his 
forefathers, struggled to his pedal extremities and harangued the Court like " Aeschines " of old. 

With all the melody of a nightingale was his siren voice accompanied. True, he dwelt not largely on the legal 
principles involved, but allowed his argument to associate and mingle with the rag-tag, ruff-scuff and bob-tail of obscure 
decisions. He at times drifted off from the facts of the case and seemed to be intently surveying the bookcase opposite the 
trial table. It was feared by the other side that he would introduce ancient Venetian law and spring a surprise, but this he 
refrained from doing. At the conclusion of his remarks, Pogorelskin, the powerful orator from the east side, by a quick, 
sudden movement was on his feet and commenced a dissertation, which, while dealing largely with the American law, was 
mingled with denunciatory expletives hurled at the Czar of Russia. Pogery's linguistic pyrotechnics and pantomimic 
gesticulations exceeded immeasurably the declamatory vocalisms of the poetic Dimarko. With great brilliancy of periods 
and homicidal attacks upon the Queen'sown English, Pog. proceeded, while his assembled auditors listened like petrified 
fossils to the subtle interjections of this advanced exponent of polyglot and modern shystery. As he delved deeper into the 
myriad of statutes and introduced convenient quotations from the Talmud, minus quotation marks, the interest was unabated. 
Dimarko, like an astute Barrister, was continuously objecting, but was always overruled by the Lord Chief Justice, who acted 
with a quantum of dignity correlative with the case. Before the conlusion of Pog's remarks, the Count was again wrapped in 
tin arms of Morpheus, dreaming, no doubt, of Italian castles of oxygen, in whose saloons Dimarko I and his sorrel-eyed 


consort held their levees. Fog. ended his argument and sat down, after which there was a pause in the proceedings but Tony 
slumbered on. A loud noise was heard ; a book had fallen to the floor, and the Count was awake. Upon examination, it 
was found that the book contained a case in which an American jurist had opined that foreign titles were of no effect in 
America. Seidman, with eyes like a Dumas description of D'Artagman, then begun his oration. During his conduct of his 
case Pog. would frequently tip him as to certain technical points. Seidman seemed to have a grasp on the case, which was 
al the more wondrous, as it seemed that the same was constantly escaping from the mouths of the preceding barristers As 
told above, this was all that Seidman said. 

And now, Smoot and the coup d'etat. Smooi : « Now, Yer Honor, this case went up in 87th Aid " 

Judge ; "Mr. Smoot, it came down in 87th Md." 

S ! n0 ° t: " Wel1 ' Yer " Honor ' this case don>t bear °n any other case that I knows of, and, tharfor, thets all I hev to sax- " 
Smoot then resumed his seat. 

The cause was, therefore, submitted without argument, and the Court called for the record in the case Search was 
immediately instituted, and it was discovered reposing in the capacious pocket of Pogey's coat. The record was turned over 
to the Court, who held the case sub-curia.

The Fraternity Girl. 

Beth's not a model scholar, nor versatile iti Greek, 
The alphabet, she knows; her Latin prose is weak. 
Among our set of fellows, we do not care for that, 
She wears the skull and bones of our old " fiat " 

The poster pillows in the chair, embroidered by Floss, 
She said she'd be Matt's sister, so now she's one of us; 
The pass-word, grip and traveling sign she's got down pat, 
The maltese cross she wears because she's in our " frat " 

Now when I trump my partner's ace, I am not to blame, 
Just tell me hearts are trumps— then see who'll win the game. 
I thought the Queen upon the card wore a leghorn hat, 
And 'ueath her curls a cross of pearls belonging to the " frat." 

Jeannett's white arm was never scarred with our Great Seal, 

We make believe she's one of us, of course not real. 

Girls can come in our hearts, but not our " habitat." 

They're just as happy when they're "pledged " to our old " frat. 

So fill the bumper to the brim for all our girls, 

Without, fraternity life is robbed of choicest pearls, 

And fame's high rung, and all that's true and worth the striving at, 

Is nought without the thoughts of her — my " Sister " in the " frat." 


The Trials of the Freshman. 

A True (?) History of the Class Ejection* 

EARLY in the Fall of the year of our Lord, eighteen hundred and ninety-nine, the politicians of the Class of 1900 began 
to go their rounds among the students, button-holing the different members and asking them to support their 

respective candidates. 

It was an easy matter to pick out the candidates for office and their various supporters, because, just so soon as a man 
announced himself, or had someone announce him, just so soon would he get that suave, polite smile on his face and speak 
in a kind, solicitous tone to every man in the class, yea, verily, men whom he would not have noticed before, he would then 
greet in such a cordial manner, that one would think he was the best fellow in the world ; and, then, the right and left bowers 
were easily picked out, for if you did not pick them out they would be sure to pick you out, and the question here is, who 
would be the worst stuck? Of course, you would, because you are not a politician. This continued all through the 
campaign, which lasted from the first day of October, 1899, (in fact, I have heard it stated that one man commenced his 
compaign during his first year at the University,) until March 1st, 1900, with such deals and counter deals as would put the 
celebrated Honorable Dick Croker to shame. Some were promised that, if they would support a certain man, they would be 
elected to the high and honorable office of sergeant-at-arms. 

Excitement ran high, audit is said by some of the officials at the Record Office (for a number of our classmates have 
positions with the Title Company, or had up to election day) that for three days before the election no one could do any work in 
that office on account of the loud, excitable comments of our classmates in sounding their praises of the certain candidates. 
One day our worthy friend from Cumberland and the " Lord of East Baltimore" were in the midst of a heated discussion, 
which everyone thought would end in blows, when in came the President of the Title Company. Everyone was chagrined and 
crestfallen, except Lord Von Keck, who quickly gained his composure and said : " How do you do, Mr. President, will you 
have a chew of tobacco ? " 

Well, at last, the day of election was at hand, the meeting was called to order and the Hon. " Mose " Gill was elected 
( haii-man. Mr. Stevenson, who was born in the objective case, made a motion, I don't know what, but neither did he ; then Mr. 
Karns, the California politician, who had experience in the political squabbles of Kansas and California, and who was invited 
to manage Goebel's campaign, nominated John D. Bacon for President of the Class of 1900. Mr. Stevenson made another 
motion, which was never seconded; then the boy orator from Hagerstown put in nomination Frederick J. Singley. Mr. 
Stevenson made another' motion, which was lost. Then there was a hush, which fell upon the vast assembly, such as when 
ulus addressed the Carthagenians, as our curly-haired, pugnacious, firery stump-speaker from North Broadway awoke from 
his dream, • am< forward, raised his high squeaky, tom-cat, tenor voice and said: " Mr. President and most honorable members 


of a most honored class, I salute you (which accounted for the honored class), in the name and by the authority of his Most 
Honorable High Lord, Manager of our Faction, I greet you, peace be unto you, and may you have discretion and sense 
enough, most worthy brothers, to vote for the man I am going to nominate. He is a man of unquestioned truth and varacity, 
and works for the same company I used to work for. I tell you, fellow-classmates, he got Howard Shelley and Bibb Mills a 
job, you vote for him and he will get you one too ; but even if he did work beside me for three long months, he his not 
contaminated, he is a man who has not asked a single man to vote for him, who is not going to keep his word, he has not 
promised a single office which he will not fill." And then he proceeded to indulge in mud slinging for fifteen minutes, and 
wound up in the following characteristic manner : " Fellow-classmates, you do not want to vote for the other two candidates, 
they are too smart. Now I tell you how you do, you vote for my man, and if he has not sense enough to do you any 
good, he has not sense enough to do you any harm. Hurrah for our side ! ' (Much applause.) 

Then arose the tall, handsome son from Laurel, who was a student of forensic eloquence under the Hon. " Mose " Gill, 
but now author of " Forensic Eloquence." He spoke in part, about as follows : " Mr. Chairman and fellow members of our 
honorable class, during all the deliberations of our venerable body, never has my feeble voice been lifted in your councils, or 
my advice been intruded at your deliberations. I have, with great effort on my part, kept my mouth shut, but now the pent-up 
eloquence of my soul seeks a vent. I have consulted our friend around the corner and he has filled me to overflowing. I 
am almost too " full" for utterance. I arise to second every word which was spoken by our curly-haired orator, and I wish 
further to say, I work (?) for the same company the curly-haired gentleman used to work for, and I wish to tell you, fellow 
classmates, I was an unpledged man until I worked for that company, but now I am going to vote and work for a man who 
has not made a promise to anybody but me, who has not asked a single man, besides myself, to vote for him. The other men 
have promised every man in the class an office but me, do you think I am going to vote for anybody who won't look after his 
friends ? Certainly not. I would rather vote for my man, sixteen to one, because he has not made a promise he will not fill. 
Now, fellow- classmates, if you want to read your title clear to seats in the peanut gallery, you vote for the other side ; we had 
an apple out of that bag last year. But if you want high seats in the synagogue on commencement night, you vote for our 
side." Then for twenty long minutes he indulged in mud slinging, in which the other two candidates were somewhat 
spattered, but, at last, the flow of eloquence ceased, and the orator, proving that he was too full for further utterance, sat down 
amid the plaudits of his admiring classmates. There being no more eloquence on tap, we proceeded to ballot, with the result 
that the " reform candidate " was in the lead. Before another ballot could be taken, Mr. Adonis Supplee placed in nomination 
the mellifluent Bunting. Another ballot, still no election. Croker Stevenson made another objection, and then we 

During the next day the telephone bells were ringing all over the city, by means, whereof, different politicians made 
successful deals with various candidates, and when we met that evening, Mr. Bacon addressed us in part, as follows : " Mr. 
Chairman and honored friends, I will not make a long speech." (Prolonged applause). " But there is a statement I wish to 
make. You know I put up a pretty stiff fight for class presidency, and had it not been for the trickery and chicanery (I like 


that word chicanery) of certain members of this class I would have been elected, and I wish to say, had I been elected, I 
could not have kept all the promises I have made, because I promised every single office to three different men, but I would 
have made that all right by putting in some other men whom I had not promised. I love my friends, and no one knows better 
how to use their friends than I do, in fact, I use my friends 'to the very last ditch,' but now I am going to withdraw" (a 
Hobson's choice). " Rut I want to thank my friends and say, if I have any further use for them, I will let them know, and i* 
I do, the old promises will hold good on their part." On the next ballot Tolson was elected. 

We then proceeded with nominations for Vice-President. Messrs. Denmead and Bacon were nominated, with the result 
that Bacon was elected. Messrs. Millikin, Herman and Stringer were nominated for secretary. In nominating Mr. Herman- 
Mr. Mills, among other things, said : " Mr. President and gentlemen, in placing in nomination the man that I do, I need but 
repeat the following couplet to show you his qualifications : 

With bay-window so big (?) 

And mustache so sable (?), 
He is a giant in mind 

And a man at the table. 

" I now place in nomination Mr. Millikin." Carried. For sergeant-at-arms, Mr. Keek's voice was heard as he placed 
Mr. Herman in nomination in about the following words : 

" It is my privilege to nominate for sergeant at-arms a man known to you all. He is rivaled by some, excelled by 
none, preceded but not eclipsed by John L. Sullivan. It is splendid to behold him, he has the grace of Talma, the 
nerves of Blondin, the agility of Jeffries, the air of a Bourbon and the ease of a ballerina. He plays with strong men 
as a child with a toy. His diaphanous costume reveals his sturdy figure. He has legs like the Colossus at Rhodes, and all 
the serpentine sinuosity of Kscamilla the Torreador. A chest as deep as an English farmer, and the brute force of an 
American pugilist to back his demands. I trust, gentlemen, that my protege will receive the unanimous support of his fellows 
when 1 mention the name of Mr. Irving G. Heiman. He is not with us to-day. I presume he has a case in court." But even 
this eloquence did not carry the day. 

I wish to say to those who were defeated, cheer up, your time will come by and by, and we hope that in the dim and 
distant future you will, if it is possible, be more successful than the successful ones have been in these latter days. 

Who is the one who knows the law, Who is the one that gets a big head Who is the one that argues his moot, 

Wears his hat cocked aside And reads what this judge And for some musty tome 

And shoots off his jaw, And that lawyer said, He worries old Smoot, 

Sits up night and day Who wears a sage look Who compiles a thesis 

And keeps plugging away, And studies his book, In bits, chunks and pieces,

Mt\ Poe's Quiz on Evidence* 

J/r. Poe—" Mr. Dimarco, state the exceptions to the admissibility of hearsay evidence." 

Mr. D.— "Would it be "competent" for me, Mr. Poe, to refer to Reynold's Memoranda to refresh my recollection?" 

Mr. Poe—- The doctrine you invoke, Mr. Dimarco, is for the purpose of refreshing one's recollection— not for impressing 
heretofore unknown facts." 

Mr. Poe— "Mr. Stevenson, after you open up offices in New York State, suppose in the trial of a cause you wanted 
to prove the law of a foreign State, say of Maryland, how would you go about it?" 

Mr. S.—~ Well, I would summon some one of the Senior Class as a witness, to prove the laws of Maryland in force up 
to June, 1900." * 


Mr. /V— "Mr. Keck, in the celebrated case of Briscoe vs. State, the proposition that confronted the Court of Appeals, 
was whether the voluntariness vel non of an alleged confession should be submitted to the jury, with instruction to consider 
it if they believed it voluntary, and exclude it if they found it to be involuntary. Upon that proposition, Mr. Keck, of what 
great principle did the Court deliver itself?" 

Mr. Keck— "That the Circuit Judge of Charles County had made a great mistake." {Cheers from the Gallery.) 

Mr. Poe — " Mr. Cromwell, you say conviction of perjury would disqualify a witness?" 
Mr. C.—"Yes, sir." 

Mr. Poe — " But suppose he were pardoned by the Governor, what effect, if any, would that have?" 
Mr. C. — "Well, it would enable him to register in time to vote for the Governor's re-election." 

Mr, Poe — " Do you know of any precedent in support of that proposition ?????" 


We hear so much about " Our Girl Graduate," how about 

"Our Boy Graduate/' # 

Our lovely June will soon be here, 
With blooming flowers and skies so clear, 
And from all sides we soon will hear, 
"The sweet Girl Graduate." 

Now tell me, all you thoughtful folks, 
Who see through schemes and points of jokes, 
Why is it that we hear no croaks 
Of our graduated boys? i 

Of course, we're neither sweet nor fair, 
And wear no posies in our hair; 
As for a blush, we would not dare, 
But still we're there. 

We do wear gowns, of course they're black, 
And have no sashes in the back; 
Of flounce and frill there is a lack, 
But would you otherwise? 

We know we're awkward on the stage, 
We boys of every size and age; 
And fuss and flowers make us rage, 
But we deserve them. 

So cheer the U. of M. boys for their work. 
Give them their dues and do not shirk, 
Let thoughts of them in memory lurk, 
( )ur Boy Graduates.

Rough-house " in the Senate. 


The Senate* 

WE wish to say to the reader that, with reference to the subject of this article, the Latin maxim nullum est jam dictum 
quod non dictum sit prius, is null and void al> initio; for historians have never revealed facts equal to, nor the gods 
ever created men greater than those of the 'Varsity Senate. 

To the ordinary student, the word "Senate" arouses no special interest; he remembers that it was the name applied 
to an august assemblage of Plebeians and Patricians in ancient Rome ; that it was before such a body that Cicero delivered 
his famous oration ; that today there are political bodies called by that name ; and that even the very course of human 
events has been changed by laws passed by such assemblies ; yet all this forms only a small part of the vast universal history 
of mankind and, therefore, is of no special interest to him ; but to the law student of the University of Maryland, the word 
"Senate," aside from the meaning heretofore stated, has a special significance, for it brings vividly to his mind recollections 
of parliamentary debates and scenes of order and disorder, such as when all were listening to the masterly eloquence of some 
distinguished orator, and when about a dozen members, each trying to be recognized by the President as having the floor, 
made the Senate chamber ring with expressions of: " Mr. President ! ! " " Point of Order ! ! ! " " Point of Information ! ! ! ! " 
" ROUGH HOUSE !!!!" "Outside with that alley talk !" and other similar phrases. 

It was in the Grecian Senate that Demosthenes delivered his master-pieces ; in the Roman Senate that Cicero 
denounced Cataline ; in the Senate of the United States that Webster made his famous speeches, and that Calhoun thrilled 
the hearts of the people by his eloquence, but, in those days such speakers as are now enrolled in the Senate of the University 
of Maryland were not yet born. 

It is now that the eloquence of Demosthenese must give way to that of Senator Nice, who with ore rotunda fills the 
Senate Chamber with unphilosophical ideas as to the best methods of dealing with political problems. 

The fime of Cicero is now overshadowed by that of Senator Morfit, who has gained notoriety by his forcible 
denunciation of every member of the Senate, from the President to the most humble (himself excepted), as unworthy of the 
name of "Senator," because they at times chanced to talk or whistle while some (he) was addressing the Senate. 

The glory of Webster and Calhoun wane before that of the distinguished Senator Latane, who by his eloquence and 
personal magnetism, is able to lead his audience into the very gates of " Hades," and show them the scenes indescribable, 
then, sad to say, he leaves them there. 

The tender voice of Senator Hunting would melt to tears the most stolid heart of the worst reprobates. The 
thunderbolts of Heaven would not "jar you" more than the voice of our Kentuckian. "Nullum quod tetigit non ornavit" 
might well be said of Senator Maloy. Then, there is the critical Senator, Littig, a second Burk, with a like dinner-bell 


voice, who always has the Senate at heart (suggested that it must be the Senate's heart) and who opposes everything except 
the having of a smoker. We trust he will some day find his ideal in the new House of Representatives. One Senator, who, to 
borrow from Shakespeare, is " bearded like a pard," realizing the impossibility of gaining distinction in the Senate, made his 
mark by breaking beer bottles against the wall at the smoker. 

Last and least, is our little fellow, whose physical deficiency, we trust, is wholly counteracted by his ability of mind. 
Up to the present time, however, there has not been sufficient circumstancial evidence to warrant a verdict in his favor. 

There are others whose names we might mention, but matters of importance will not permit. 

In summing up the characteristics of our members, we will simply give the opinion held by Senator Nyburg, ever since 
the expiration of his four months' term as President of the Senate, and that is, that Aristotle was perfectly correct in 
characterizing man as a il iroXiTt^bvcaov." 

As to the work of the Senate : 

The world-wide influence of the senatus consumtum of the Roman Senates or the " Imperialistic " influence of the 
United States Senate, is not to be compared with that of the Senate of the University of Maryland; its power is " panoramic 
in scope and microscopic in intensity." 

It has dictated the political duty of Kentucky ; vested the ownership of corporations in the government ; sanctioned 
capital punishment ; regulated and established uniform divorce laws in this country ; granted free trade to Porto Rico ; freed 
the Philippines ; decided the fate of the Boers ; and now would like to grasp the earth by its axis, hold it up, twirl it around, 
to see if anything has been left undone.

unfriend!}' act." 

Judge — " Mr. Stevenson, what is contraband of war ? " 

Mr. Stevrnson — " Those things directly useful in fighting." 

Judge—" Well, in view of the late stampede in the Transvaal, would you consider the proposed shipment of Arizona 
mules, if made, as coming within your definition ?" 

Mr. Stevenson— "Well, Your Honor, in view of the great number of asses the English already have there, the shipment 
of some additional donkeys, I think, could hardly be considered as 'contraband: " 

Judge — " Mr. Tolson, enumerate and define the several kinds of 
Mr. Tolson — •« Governments de jure, de facto and defuncto. " 
" Be jure, those that ought to be but are not. De facto, those that are but ought not to be. Defuncto, those that use 
to be but don't go now." 

Judge—" Mr. Bosley, you spoke of the New York law on marriage and divorce, and said a man may get a divorce in 
New York, but still be forbidden to remarry there, yet leaving the wife free. You also said he might live on the Jersey side 
(if mosquitos permitted, and, marrying there, have a wife recognized as such in New Jersey, but not in New York. But 
suppose he sliould remarry in New York, what effect would it have? " 

Mr. Bosley— "It would be bigamy in him but not in her." 

Small voice from the door — " Your Honor, suppose he should make up with his once divorced wife, and remarrying her 
in the State of New York, would it be bigamy on his part and not on hers ? " 

Judge — " Mr. Keck, the Court will take that under advisement." 


A Sample of the Usual Nomination Speech in the Class Elections of the Law 

School of the University of Maryland* 


Mr. Chairman and Fellow- Classmen: 

The gentleman, whom I have the extreme pleasure of arising to-day to nominate, is one whose name is magic from 
boundary to boundary of Maryland, and later, the uttermost inhabitants of the Solar System will, undoubtedly, bow down 
with us in a community of worship of the same. His career will only be limited by the fact that imagination even has 
bounds, and the goal that he will attain be too sadly beyond our view, for there is a degree of glory that mortal sight cannot 
bear. This, fellow-classmen, is not a dream either, induced by the alluring caresses of some super-aesthetic brand of dope, 
but, on the contrary, a mathematical deduction, arrived at from a careful inspection of his past life, and a plotting by the most 
correct principles of analytics, with the data, thus obtained, of the parabolic curve of his course, extending on into infinity, 
somewhere beyond the rose-tinted dreams of the most vicious absinthe fiend, and farther than the faintest stars discernible by 
our eyes, even when smitten by an ultra-astronomical club. 

Aye, this is he. friends, rummers and farmers, Oh ! hang it, countrymen, I — I — I mean classmen, this is he, this demi-god, 
and what is his opponent? Yes, what is he? Why he had the nerve to want the presidency of the class, and the gentleman 
whom I am nominating would not have had it had we not gone to him on our bended knees and prayed him to be our 
president, and to thus exalt us. On the other hand, you will observe that your buttonholes are frayed and worn by the 
ceaseless fretttin^ of a grasping hand, and by a man who, in my humble opinion, is not possessed of executive ability in 
sufficiency to render him capable of presiding over a bevy of quail, while our candidate can even penetrate the innermost 
cryptogrammic working of the mind of the most pronounced parlimentary law fiend, and disentangle the snarl of his points of 
order. The smile of our opponent is of an intermittent character, and that of the prodigy, who I am to present for your 
consideration, is a perpetual institution. Th it person, whose name is already before the class, is a personal friend of mine, and 
man to man, I am proud to know him, but, presidentially considered, he is a blackguard in contradistinction to an angel of 
light in the person, who has condescendingly consented, metaphoric illy speaking, to lav aside for the moment his No. 10 pair 
of wings and allow us to shine in the reflected light of his personal glory. Gentlemen, I nominate for the higest office that his 
class can beg him to have, Mr. Would-be-president. 



Legal Ethics Up-to-Date* 

FOR the benefit of those who aspire to startle the world by their knowledge of the law and the warmth of eloquence, a 
few remarks may be " pertinent." 

Do not, (in the vernacular,) " soak " yourclient when he retains you to secure patent rights for an oriental string- 
bean promoter. Charge only a moderate fee in case you are consulted by a one-legged man. Never take a case for plaintiff 
or defendant, when representing but one of the Siamese twins — get them both. Remember that woman's tears do not wilt 
courts, therefore try her case before a jury. When a prospective client asks you to secure copyrights for his new book, 
entitled the Hen vs. Science, don't advise your client to buy an incubator, for he will nevertheless imagine his book will 
hatch the shekels. 

A lawyer's mind should be alive to all the current topics, viz : Sleeping-car comforts, masculine 
kettle drums, the Constitution of Dahomey, tunnels, biographies, head-lights, thirst fatalities, carving 
wild sheep. Decoration Day among the Sioux, entomology, parables on wedding garments, sic semper 
joint powder, soliloquies on the watei melon, table etiquette and the average man ; how to slide down 
a mountain in a gold pan, or how to tread comfortably on a tack or a broken saucer, the modern 
story of Cain, and the morbidly matrimonial Mormon, as well as the primordial principle of all 

Don't make a one-horse effort to do away with the jury system, which not only gives the right 
of Mich trial to every one, but allows the members to filch $2.00 a day at our expense. Don't roll 
pool with the court, or give plug tobacco to the bailiffs, otherwise such acts would tend to elevate the 
philanthropical side of the profession. Don't worry yourself as to whether a juror can distinguish 
the difference between a verdict or a porous plaster ; he draws his usufruct just the same. Even if 
you must occasionally wake him with a chair, don't worry. Jurors will ever consider that they have 
been empanelled to disagree. If necessary, feed him before the trial on Rip Van Winkle cheese, and 
if you win, get him so completely under the weather that he cannot possibly get home without a \ 
director}- and the assistance of a large part of the posse comitatus. Always impress on him tlu.-v^_ 
difference between homicidal assaults and malicious tape-worms. And be careful lest the cuspidors 
in the jury box be overworked. If you find he's easy, pay him a fair quid pro quo, but when he gets 
extravagant, haggle about the price. Don't try to force a law through the Legislature, which engages 
the attention of the courts between biennial sessions, with something like the exclusiveness of a first 


love. Remember there are other suitors entitled to their " day in court." Don't advocate the passage of bills looking to 
the establishment of a home for bald-headed orphans, or to aid indigent politicians, or to establish an asylum for victims of 
the "fine cut" habit. In agricultural laws, see that there is an act looking toward the more successful propagation of the 
doughnut plant, regulation of the size of morning delivery of chunks of ice. Never admit anything, and always endeavor, 
when in court, to point out the court's error. Always steer clear of the orphan nunc pro tunc. Always serve the interests 
of the client, whether the client be a partial orphan, grass widow, brevet bachelor, or ward in chancery. Remember, that by 
frequent changes in the seed, a rich harvest of clients will be sown, and long and productive periods of litigation are thereby 
inaugurated ; the tendency being to stimulate a now dormant feeling of legal fraternity and make us feel that it were good for 
us to be here. 

The Last Straw. 

What goes to make a lawyer ? 
Ah ! friends, several things; 

A bit of brain, 

A goal to attain, 
And no pretense to " wings; " 

Then one always must 

Keep the dust 
Off his books, and the road 

Will be fair 

If he learn with care 
To manipulate the Code. 

What goes to make a lawyer ? 
Some slickness in exams; 

To get there is 

The principal "biz" 
Of all the legal "lambs." 

But as we live 

'Tis hardest to give, 
Ere one may seek to strive, 

The State Board that check, 

To tread on one's neck, 
For an extra twenty-five. 


An Alumnus in Office* 

SOON after the close of the war, Captain X, of Class of 1899, was appointed a Justice of the Peace in a country place in 
South Carolina. Beyond the management of real estate, drawing up deeds, etc., he had no legal knowledge ; indeed 

his entire stock of " book learning " was small and poorly selected, but any lack in general information was fully 
made up, for his uses, by self-assertion. 

Late one afternoon, while riding home, he met a young woman and two men. The young woman and one of the men 
wished to be married at once. They procured the necessary license, but an irate father was on their path and vowed that they 
should never be married. Now, the Captain had never witnessed a marriage. He remembered having seen a book about 
the house years before, with a form of marriage in it, but where it was now he could not remember. " Why," said he, when 
he told the story afterwards, " I knew the 'postles' creed and commandments, and at first I thought I'd use 'em to begin on, 
but then I reckoned, on the whole, they was too solemn." A less assured man would have been sorely perplexed, but not he. 
He also lost no time in removing his hat and remarked : " Hats off in the presence of the Court." All being uncovered, he 
said : " I'll swear you in fust. Hold up your right hands." " Me too?" asked the friend of the groom. " Of course," said 
the Captain, " all witnesses must be sworn. You and each of you solemnly swear that the evidence you shall give in this 
case shall be the truth, an' nothin' but the truth, so 'elp you . 

" You, John Marvin, do solemnly swear, that to the best of your knowledge an' belief, you take this yer woman ter 
have an' ter hold for yerself, yer heirs, exekyerters, administrators and assigns, for your and their use, behalf and behoof 
forever." " I do," answered the groom. 

" You, Alice Ewer, take this yer man for yer husband, ter hav' an' ter hold forever ; and you do further swear that 
you are lawfully seized in fee-simple, are free from all incumbrance an' hav' good right to sell, bargain and convey to the said 
grantee yerself, yer heirs, administrators an' assigns? " " I do," said the bride rather doubtfully. 

"Well, John," said the Captain, "that'll be about a dollar an' fifty cents." 

"Are we married?" asked the other. 

"Not yet, ye ain't," quoth the Captain with emphasis, "but the fee comes in here." After some fumbling it was 
produced and handed over to the " Court," who examined it to make sure that it was all right, and then pocketed it and 
continued : 

" Know all men by these presents, that I, Captain X, of Raleigh, North Carolina, being in good health and of sound 
an' disposin' mind, in consideration of a dollar 'n fifty cents to me in hand paid, the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged, 
d<> and by these presents have declared you man and wife during good behavior an' till otherwise ordered by the Court." 
The men put on their hats again, the young couple, after shaking their benefactor's hand, went on to meet their destiny and 
the irate father, while the Captain rode home richer in experience.

The Barrister and the Beauty* 

ONCE upon a time, a barrister loved a beauty and the beauty also loved him, although, it could never be discovered 
why a beauty should love a barrister. Anyhow, the responsibilities of his position long worried him, for all of his 
possessions in the world were represented by a conventional outfit, and he earned not more than the wherewithal to 
purchase stogies occasionally, and dine elaborately at O'Mahoney's. This plentiful lack of income he received from an aged 
and wealthy client, who respected the long hair of this youth at the bar the more because of his own utter lack of e'en a 
remnant of the same. 

Well, to proceed, this youth, of the most high and honorable profession, racked his brain with more application 
yet, if it may be believed, than on the exams., and after much travail there was born an idea, aye, an inspiration, so ingenious 
and yet so simple, that the youth in wonder at its simplicity almost discovered what a small amount of brain he really could 
command, to suppose by fathering such an idea he had done anything remarkable. However, his further procedure raised 
the exploit from the commonplace, for now comes the unexpected : He introduced his wealthy old client to the beauty and 
gained still greater respect for his crop of the lenghty hirsute article. 

And then, one evening, having drawn up the papers, conveying a sort of an estate for life in the heart of the beauty to 
the old fish of the genus " sucker," and leaving a resemblance to a remained in himself, he took them to the beauty for her 
approval. But, mirabile dictu ! ah ! ye gods ! and soforth, the maid was an exception to the modern rule with a vengeance, 
she would have naught of the Croesus, but wanted only the barrister, a most embarrassing position for a modest, bashful 
young barrister to be in truly. Anyhow, when he recovered his self-possession, they followed the precedents set by aeons of 
reports, and they communed at Cupid's shrine 'til the clock struck eleven and the paternal boots began a dangerous shuffle 
overhead, and then he bade her a long good night, in due form according to Carey, and then went home to think. 

It took numerous pipesful to arrive at an amendment, but, at last, the muse hovering over the pages of a Tiedeman or 
a Brantley, and the next day he called early, before the victim came, and explained how the estate of the Croesus might be 
defeated before it accrued. She delightfully signed the necessary papers (for the lawyer in the man there stood forth, and he 
must needs have protection in case the beauty changed her mind). A week later the engagement of the beauty to the Croesus 
was announced, and immediately she began to have illucid intervals, strangely too, always in the presence of the wealthy, 
old, presumptive husband-to-be. ' )f course, no man wants an insane betterhalf, and this became the old fellow's conclusion after 
ral very realistic exhibitions by the girl in true emotional style. He sorrowfully conveyed his impressions to the parents, 
and the\' could not account lor the trouble, but called in a doctor, while the complaining party went sadly on his way. 


Our barrister friend had a rich young pard in the law, who was fond of a joke, and some days after he called on the 
Croesus, seeking justice in the way of substantial damages for the abused affections of the girl, and, after much sympathy from 
the unconscious victim, was referred to the extremely respected long-haired attorney. No conference was necessary, as it 
will be plainly observed, when everything had been so clearly foreseen, and so all that was to be done, and sensibly at that, 
was to advise the old client to settle up for $50,000 and keep out of court. With a child-like confidence this advice was 
carried out, and such a salve seemed all that was required in the case of the beauty, for her illucid moments ceased entirely, 
her parents testified to a great cure by a certain specialist, who became in short order, consequentially, famous. The 
symptoms, it may be added, never returned to the beauty as Mrs. Barrister, and thus ended a most remarkable case of 
involuntary charity. 

Otate JDar Examination* 

[Mr. Prat her before Maryland State Board of Legal Examiners.') 

Mr. Arthur Geo. Broivn — " Mr. Prather, can you state the fundamental principles underlying the whole superstructure 
of International Law?" 

Mr. P. — " I have not studied general principles, so much, Mr. Brown, as I have the Code Law of Maryland." 

Mr. B. — " Well, I will ask you another question then. Upon what early system, existing in England, is our law of 
real property based ? " 

Mr. P. — " As I said, Mr. Brown, I have not studied theories and systems, and general principles, but am thoroughly 
conversant with the Code and every section in it applicable to Real Property in Maryland." 

Mr. B. — " My young friend, I am sorry, we will not be able to ' pass you,' for there is some danger of this new 
Democratic Legislature repealing all you know." 


The Life of a Senior. 

"Just as the Sun Went Down," on the Eve of Battle, the Day Before Examinations. 

Mr. Poe — -" Now, gentlemen, I will ' meet you at Philippi.' I presume you are equipped for 
ȣ>' the fray and have girded your loins for battle. As to Pleading and Practice, I will ask you nothing 
that may not be found diretly or indirectly stated, in the 25,000 pages comprised in your text books 
on these subjects. 

'« "*""-' '" "As to Evidence and Damages, I will ask no question that has not at some time been solemnly 

adjudicated by some judicial tribunal of some land. With this assurance, you should have no trouble preparing for the 
examinations on the morrow. Au revoir." 

Well, Weilepp was his name, 

And he thought to gain quick fame, 

In a 'Varsity where many students went. 

He was ever making motions 

On antiquated notions. 

In motioning his every moment spent. 

The man of many motions, 
The man of funny notions, 
He like a sleeping potion, 
Does motion all the while 
With oral locomotion; 
And strange mental commotion, 
He's a pantomimic motioner 
With a variety of style. 

He motions with his proboscis, 

He motions with his lips, 

His eyes a dream, 

Like curdled cream, 

And motions with his hips; 

He motions with his hirsute growth, 

And with his fingers motions, 

He wags and shakes his waggish ears, 

To show his pent emotions. 

He motions to the stars above, 
And interjects his feet. 
As a pyrotechnic linguist. 
Our Weilepp can't be beat; 
He's a combination declaration, 
A Demosthenic disintegration, 
A mastodonic palpitation; 
This motioner sublime. 

He's lex non scrhpta on the floor, 

And motions truly grand. 

He leans on desks and cuspidores, 

Or, on one leg he stands. 

But laches and recrimination, 

Obiter dicta and school elation ; 

Throw down his motions with locomotion, 

But Weilepp motions on. 

Take up the realty burden; 
Take torts and pleading, too, 
And hammer away at contracts, 
And stick to titles like glue. 
Study the statue of uses, 
Bills and notes read through; 
Law is the white man's burden, 
And makes the student blue. 


A Lecture by Prof* Smart Aleck of the Utah University* 


1HAYE just returned from the land of many wives. While at Salt Lake City I visited the University of Utah and, naturally, 
was attracted to the Law Department. It was Prof. Smart Aleck's day, and I felt highly honored, as I had learned 
beforehand that Smart Aleck was the legal wonder of the Mormon State, and thus I settled back for an interesting, as 
well an instructive lecture. 

The learned lecturer and explorer of the dark realms of the law spoke unto his large and brilliant class, as follows : 
Gentlemen : " Before I begin today's lecture, I wish to recommend a few reference books, which have been accepted by 
our courts, and which I advise you to purchase. Note them a s I rapidly call them off." 

Venable — "The Mistakes of Misogomy." Brantly — " Contractualities de Polygami." 

Poe — "On the Practice of Polygamy." Stockbridge — "Conflicts in Polyandry." 

Ritchie's — "Lex Mergatorius Matrimoni." France — "Trust Relationship." 

Baer's — " Live Estates in Monogamy." Harland — " Law of Plural Domestic Relationship." 

Phelps — " Primordial Principles of Misogomy." Gans — " Toleration, as applied to Mormonism." 

"With careful reading of these and an occasional glimpse into the Utah Reports" — (here the lecturer threw up his hand 
and exclaimed) — "Ah ! gentlemen, that is a wonderful set of books. Daudet's Sapho and Balzac aint in it, and I feel certain 
you will agree with me after you have read them." 

"Now, in the first place, I wish to call your attention to the law of descent. Prior to the adoption of our Code, this 
particular branch of our law was merely a jumble of words, a regular Chinese puzzle. Even I could not give its meaning. 
The idea has often occurred to me, that our progenitors in framing this difficult part of the law, cast the words father, 
mother, descendants, children, etc., into a dice box, then threw then out thus as they lay, so were they accepted, as now 
constituted. However, you will find it simplified in our present Code Supplement, which I have had the extreme honor of 

" Let us look a little further into our system of descent, as it is at present. Now, if a father dies, his property goes to 
his children ; of course, you are all aware of the fact, that our law allows as many wives as a man is able to support, and for 
quite a while there was much conflict as to the dower." 

" In 34 Utah, the first wife of Jim Manywives vs. Jim's Otherwives, page 914^, it was laid down that the wives of the 
deceased should throw dice for dower, and the fortunate or lucky one could proceed in equity to recover it, even against the 
ghost of the deceased." 

" This doctrine is withal a very sound one, but in applying it special care should be taken that the dice are not cast on 
the Lord's Day, as in that event the wife could not recover." 


" Now, to illustrate further, suppose A. B., having three wives, dies (I don't blame the man, when we, in Maryland, 
know that a mother-in-law goes free of charge with every wife) and leaves no will. By his first wife, he has eleven children ; 
by wife, No. 2, he has eight ; and by wife, No. 3, he has nine; now, by adding the number of wives together, we have 3 ; 
then by adding the children, we find twenty-eight, or 9^ for each wife. I may as well state right here, that there is no 
distinction in Utah between children of the whole blood and children of the half blood, but some learned (?) commentators 
do claim there is, namely, Roberts on Marriage, Re-marriage, and Re-re-marrriage." 

" Well, to get back to our dower puzzle. The Chief Judge of our Court of Repeals has laid down the doctrine of 
"dice for dower," so you see only one of the wives secures dower, the other two get left. "Dos de dote non pretitur" 
precludes them. 4 Mormon Elders' Appeals, 139." 

'The other two-thirds descends as follows : Five-sixths to the Mormon Elders for the "Grandmother Fund," the 
balance is distributed equally among the twenty-eight children, after payment of lawyer's fees and court costs." 

"Another thing, gentlemen, one of the most complete and unsettled principles of our law is, as to what nature of 
property a husband is. Some courts have held that the wives were tenants in common, as to the husband's affections, and 
possession by one is possession by all. Therefore, an action of ejectment cannot be brought by one wife against the others, 
unless there has been an actual ouster." 

" In 49 Utah, page 96, Clara vs. Marie Pearl. The facts were these, Clara was taken to a theatre by her husband (the 
Passion Play was running), the other two wives had been locked up in a cellar by Clara, to prevent them partaking in the 
evening's fun. Held to be a sufficient ouster to enable plaintiffs to maintain ejectment. In the same case it was also held 
that one mother had no right to chastise the children of another wife, but the ' Old Man ' could lamm all." 

" I will speak on the divorce law next week, (cries of no you won't) but I may as well say here, that only one wife can 
sue for divorce. Held in Bringham vs. The Dairy Maid's Syndicate, 39 Utah, 4449, that only one could apply. This rule is 
deducted from the sound doctrine, so well recognized everywhere, that a man cannot twice be placed in jeopardy for the same 

" But I am getting away from the subject. The question is, is man real or personal property ? There is no denying 
that he is the "real" thing, here in Utah. Some commentators claim that as he is "dirt," and as, in most cases, he is 
a fixture that cannot be removed without prejudice to the heir, and, therefore, stoutly maintain he is "real." Others claim 
he is too "personal, " he can be leased, moved about; his soul is handled by the great judge; and, therefore, a great many 
claim he is personal." 

Here I dozed ; I hear some sort of an announcement to the effect that the Intermediate Class was to hold an 
indignation meeting against demonstrations of American women, against the illustrious citizen and marriage contractor, Mr. 
Roberts. Then I went to sleep. I know not how long I slept, but when I awoke, I found the whole Class in a snore, the 
Professor having made his exit. 


rrophecy — Class 1 /OO* 

TO that synonym for collective honor and manliness — our class — this divination is inscribed. While " mice and men 
gang aft agley," it is not amiss to prognosticate that our class will shroud itself within the mantle of fame, swathe 
its members in purple and push its feet beneath mahogany when the bleakness and the winter of its life approach. 

I assume that from our ranks (?) will be taken the counterparts (I hesitate to employ the term daguerreotype — -as canine) 
of Erskine, Choate, Webster, Clay and others. Honesty is injunctive and conscience were a thorn, did I write in the negative. 
In general, I believe that there are those of us who will surmount the loftiest pinnacle of the legal structure, and whether of 
the bench or bar, their professional logic will serve as criteria to future embryo Blackstones. 

The victories and successes of our classmates will ne'er forgotten be when even we shall have " passed in our checks," 
as per the law of Bills and Notes, and have gone to that bourne from which no traveller can obtain information through 
the Law of Carriers. I am safe in averring that through all changes produced by the mutations of time no blot or blur will 
deface the proud escutcheon of the Class of 1900. Before dealing, personally, I do predict that the class in the composite 
will bear as luscious fruit in the profession as the rustic spot bears the running vine (an athletic vegetable) and the grand 
florescence of nature. Our class is the genesis and its members the derivative of scholarly attainments. As to the individuals, 
one might say that — 

Behn — The aesthete, conservative, yet subject to temporary fits of mental aberrations, "will rise." (As Richelieu used to 
say). His clientele is bound to grow. 

Bacon — What a world of memories this name conjures up. For the gourmand, for the literati and for the others. 
Apt all through life to become disgruntled at minor happenings. Yet a good fellow and a truthful one, for did he not say " I 
speak the truth ? " Some day may hold a chair from whence he came — either cradle or college. 

Boyce — En facetiae — An Iliad of woes. (Voltaire says that " speech was given to man to conceal his thoughts.") In 
this our subject succeeds admirably. This is no cast, however, against his legal knowledge. His articulate utterances may 
be laborious, but talking does not pass examinations, and Boyce has passed all. A thinker who thinks and who will always 
give a thoughtful opinion. 

Brent — This name in German means to burn. As to his eloquence, it is neither forensically hot nor burning, but he 
burns the midnight oil. His mind has ever seemed to be filled with a studious inquisitivenes, which will, no doubt, land him 
in the front room of his calling. 

Brewer Not too late, young man, many of the Titans of the bar began their studies after the sun of life had passed 
its meridian. 


Bosley — Some advice — drop the guttural r, r, rrrrrrr. 

Bunting — A patriotic non de plume and rather rag-time. Honest rusticity is ashamed of prostituted learning, and 
Bunting will ever be plain and sail under true colors. " Dame fortune's smile awaits his efforts." 

Budnitz — In pari delicto with Schaub. 

Cassard — Ignorantia juris non cxcusat. In years to come thou, too, wilt realize that law was not made for 
lawyers alone. 

Cromwell — The name entails no confusion with that other former distingue. In school his unspoken motto seemed 
to be vive la bagatelle ; this he will, no doubt, drop when at the bar, and if he does, fees and success await him. 

Crommiller — The blossom of our gentry. His motto, like Kipling's "A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is 
a smoke." He is " the glass of fashion," has the mould of form which will last with him. His sphere is the trial table, where 
he will secure the legal laurels. 

Cross — "What's in a name?" Nothing, for our friend is amiable instead of sour or cross. In his professional career 
he will be nulli secundus. 

Cockey — To be forever a psychologist and moralist. 

Clayton — This rare species of bird, happily, is growing extinct. 

Denmeed — Calm, conservative, cool, calculating, cautious, certain, consistent, congenial, clear, capable and conscientious. 

Dowin — The moralizing muse. Rythmically and metrically expressive — our poet. Destined for a career which, 
professionally, will rhyme with the seductive-clink of fees. 

Eccleston — Impotcntia excusat legem. 

Eisenbrandt — His precious self is dear delight. The court room differs from the school. 

Ferguson — His mind will ever crave for work and more of law. 

Fitchett — Already wearied of the fight. 

Gill — Burns wrote "Sensibility how charming." 

He is a scintillating jewel to ornament the bar, 
And on the ears of jurors his subtle tones will jar. 

Gordon — So young and so symmetrical, so beautiful and fair, 

The knowledge of the law is his, the which with courts he'll share. 

Hammond — The world will gaze and with great wonder grow, 

That one small head will carry all that other lawyers know. 

Hays — A resume of all herein described. 

Hodges — Submissive to destiny. Will be a legal stoic and an austere barrister. 

Herman— As prestidigatory with his vocabulary as "Herman" was with his hands. A future Lycurgus (?). Will 
always have a case in court, in theory if not in practice. 


Hubner — " Physician, heal thyself." 

Harrison — The most assuming will be repressed by so much virtue. 
HENNIGHAUSEN — A nice and subtle contentedness that grows stronger with time. 
Holzkmxht — Always a courtier for fortune's changing mood. 
Jenkins — There is a tide in the affairs of men 
Which taken at its flood, 
Leads on to fame and fortune. 
Thou wilt ride upon its crested billow. 
Judge — An elevation for a graduate. 

King — Society and professional success will go with him hand in hand, if he but preserve the proper ratio between them. 
Karns — No matter where he roams or goes, 
No matter if it rains or snows, 
Full well and true, dear Karny knows, 
Our friendship to him always flows. 

Will lead the California bar. (Where? to the Sunday side entrance? — Editors.} 
Keck — We hear his stentorian tones pleading in earnest and ardent advocacy to shield the guilty at the bar of justice. 
And if future juries " have tears to shed," let them prepare to reserve those glistening, pearly dew drops to grace the efforts of 
an advocate now masquerading as a prophet. Wherein we find the fulfillment of another of the signs that shall precede the 
judgment day. — Editors. 

Kenney — There are vacant soft seats in the orchestra circle of the mighty, and there will always be. 
Klemm — Painters may make better faces, but his legal brow is more lasting. 
KNIPP — -Left-handed, but not left behind, 

Always sordid and erstwhile kind. 
Miller, C. W. — The law is his deity; divorces his specialty. 

Miller, J. G. L. — Destined to be the expounder of criminal law for the Cumberland bar. (The prophet wrote this under 

Mills — All the saints will salute him. 
Millikin — With collections he'll dabble, 
And of acts he will babble, 

And will oftentimes ease up his jaw ; 
He will hustle and bustle 
In life's unruly rustle 

And unravel the puzzles of law. 


McEvov — Any cause with such counsel should be crowned with success. 

McFaul — With his valuable stock of popularity he will acquire a lucrative practice and a prominent place at the bar. 

McIntosh — Quaere — quaere's the only word. 

McPhail — Pronunciation of the name in this case will not decide. Democratic instincts will send him along. 

McGrath— Epitome of all epitomes. 

Norkis — Somewhat vacillating. Will be a mute panegyric of the profession. 

Naas — Mistakes will happen, catastrophes cannot be averted. 

O' Dunne — Facile princeps. 

Oldershaw — A cane seated chair, a copy of Kent and a general abstruseness. 

Poe — A second edition. 

Prayther — Bound to be an industrial independent. 

Ramey — Will go the good old way our sires jogged slowly over. 

Roberts — All roads do not lead to fame, but a persevering traveller will reach his destination. 

Robinson — A refined gentility will ever win for him a large clientage in an appreciative society. 

Schaub — ?-?-?-?-? 

Shelley — Not the rule in the famous case, but bound to win in any other. 
Singley — Musical it sounds. Demosthenes at bar. 

Smoot — Will convey to Charles county all his right, title and interest in fame. 
Stevenson — Will step an honest jog-trot. 
Stringer — Snatched from time, yet a future philosopher. 
Stonebraker — A Samsonian title contiguous to his future career. 
Supplee — Will be the Adonis of the legal set, with numerous fair clients. 

Seidman — Everything comes to him who waits, if he but prepare himself for the " occasion sudden " during the 

Silance — Enough said. 

Smith — Will find room in the loft if he but have energy to climb the ladder. 
Tolson — Will ever tread with slow but sure and steady pace. 

Turlington — An imagination and education which in future years will be more or less pungent. 
Whettle — The exact limits of an excursion, as distinguished from a journey, have never been fixed. 
Williams — -All the labor and travail are his. 
Weilepp — The effervescent bug of enduring fame. 

Zimmerman — All beings do not possess the same rapidity, but every destination may be reached. 

This ends our list. When the roll is called at reunions, though our ranks have been depleted by the loosening of life's 
fibres, though that natural disintegration begins, let all those who are there, answer " here." 

George Keck, Prophet 1900. 

The Major's Last Quiz on Constitutional Law* 

Major — " Mr. Bacon, what is meant by ' a jury ' in the constitution ? " 

Mr. Bacon — " A jury means twelve of our peers, not more than three of whom can be 
bought. " 

Major — " What are the qualifications of Senators of the United Staaes ? " 
Mr. Bunting — " They must be of advanced age, strong party men, hair, if any, white ; beard, 
if any, long ; and for nine years next preceding their election have had a strong political pull in 
the State from which they are chosen. In addition to the foregoing, the most important qualifi- 
cation or requirement is a long bank account and special talent in legislative manipulation." 

Major — " Speaking of impeachment, what # effect would it have, for instance, in the case of the impeachment of the 
President ? " 

Mr. Snioot — " It would have a demoralizing one on the Republican party, a stimulating effect in our new possessions, 
and an uncertain one in the election of the ' Young Lochinvar of the West.' " 

Major — " Well, Mr. Prayther, could it work corruption of tlie blood} " 

Mr. Prathcr — " No, Major, they tell me he takes Celery Compound and Sarsaparilla." 

Major — " Mr. Mills, what does Sec. 5, Art. I, provide ? " 

Mr. Mills — " It provides for the printing of those remarks of members which the Senate or the House thinks 'were 
better left unsaid.' 

Major — "Speaking of the veto power, Mr. Karns, what is the nature of the Constitutional provision?" 
Mr. Karns- " It is in the nature of a rule laid on the President by Congress, and which accompanies each measure 
passed by it, to show cause, if any he have, within ten days, why the same should not become a law." 

Major — " Well, what are Letters of Marque and Reprisal ? " 

Mr. Klem — -" Ex parte writs of execution issued by Congress against the property of nations guilty of an unfriendly act." 

Major " Sec. 10, Art. I, provides that no State can make a treaty ; what does this mean ? " 

Mr. Robinson — " It means that our sister States, socially speaking, are not ' out yet,' and that all communications from 
foreign princes and potentates must be referred to the perpetual chaperon which is provided for them by the Constitution." 


Major — " Mr. Miller, could Congress pass a law prohibiting gambling? " 

Mr. Miller, J. G. L. — "No, it would be contrary to the spirit of the Constitution, which first set the precedent in Sec. 3 
of Art. I, in casting lots amongst the Senators for the long and short terms." 

Major — " Mr. Jenkins, what have you to say of Sec. 8, Art. I — about the collection of taxes ? " 

Mr. Jenkins — -" Primarily, it is the means whereby Uncle Sam is supplied with pin money ; but power is also given 
him to ' run his face' to any extent to which he can get trusted on his own credit; and if he live so extravagantly that h e 
cannot raise enough by tribute and tick, he may go into the coining business, and will be protected in the exclusive monopoly f 
and may even declare ' any old thing' legal tender." 

Major — " Well, boys, you seem to be coming out of the wilderness at last ; you ought not have any trouble in 
passing the tests in the Star Chamber. — I will meet you there, one by one — the rest I leave to your imagination." 

France's Leading Cases. 

What visions through my slumbers float 

Of Alice Male's woes, 
And Glenn Trustee doth cruelly gloat 

O'er victims grouped in rows. 

The rotund form of Henry Katz 

Looms up against my sight, 
While Dandrige weeps incessantly 

O'er his stout vessels plight. 

And when I think that I must know 

The names of everyone, 
Exactly what his torture was 

And just how it was done, 

A shudder through my frame doth pass 
And fright does raise my hairs, 

And as I hear their mingled moan, 
I add my tears to theirs.

Special instructions in Continuous Gum, Bridge and Crown Work. 

Each year, since its organization, has added to the reputation and prosperity of this Dental School, until now its graduates in almost 
every part of the world are meeting with the success that ability will ever command. The past session was the most successful one ever 
held, and visiting dentists trom all parts of the country have expressed themselves as being astonished and gratified at the ability shown 
by the students when operating upon patients in the Infirmary. Forming one of the departments of one of the oldest Universities in this 
country, its diploma is everywhere recognized and honored. 

The instruction in both operative and mechanical dentistry is as thorough as it is possible to make it, and embraces everything 
pertaining to dental art. The advantages which the general and oral surgical clinics, to which the dental students are admitted, as 
indeed to all the lectures the University affords, cannot be overestimaed. The many thousands of patients annually treated in the 
University Hospital, and other sources, afford an abundance of material for the dental infirmary and laboratory practice, and the oral 
surgery clinics. 

The Dental Infirmary and Laboratory building is one of the largest and most complete structures of the kind in the world. The 
Infirmary is lighted by sixty-five large windows, and is furnished with the latest improved operating chairs. 

The Dental Infirmary and Laboratory are open daily (except Sundays) during the entire year, for the reception of patients, and the 
practice for dental students has increased to such an extent that all the students during the past sessions have had an abundance of 
practical work, in both operative and prosthetic dentistry. These means for practical instruction have already assumed such large 
proportions that the supply has been beyond the needs of the large classes in attendance during the past sessions. 

The exceedingly large number of patients for the extraction of teeth affords ample facilities for practical experience to every student. 
It has again become necessary to enlarge the dental building, making the Infirmary nearly one hundred feet in length, and a Laboratory 
eighty feet long by forty-three wide. 

The qualifications for initiation and graduation are those adopted by the National Association of Dental Faculties and State Boards 
of Dental Examiners 

Qualifications for Graduation. — The candidate must have attended three full courses of lectures of seven months each, in different 
years, at the REGULAR or Winter sessions in this institution. As equivalent to one of these, one course in any reputable Dental College 
will be accepted. Graduates of medicine can enter the Junior Class. The matriculant must have a good English education ; a diploma 
from a reputable literary institution, or other evidence of literary qualifications, will be received instead of a preliminary examina- 
tion. All students, both Freshmen, Juniors and t-eniors, have equal advantage in operative and mechanical dentistry in this institution 
throughout every session 

(iraduatioh in Medicine.— Graduates of the Dental Department of the University of Maryland are required to attend but one session 
at the University School of Medicine prior to presenting themselves as candidates for the degree of " Doctor of Medicine." (See Catalogue.) 

The Regular or Winter Session will begin on the first day of October of each year, and will terminate May ist. 

The Summer Session, for practical instruction, will commence in March, and continue until the regular session begins. Students 
in attendance on the Summer Session will have the advantage of all the daily Surgical and Medical clinics of the University. 

The fees for the Regular Session are $100, Demonstrators' fees included ; Matriculation fee, $5 ; Diploma fee, for candidates for 
graduation, $30 ; Dissecting ticket. $10. For Summer Session, no charge to those who attend the following Winter Session. 

Board can be obtained at from #3 .50 to £5 "o per week, according to quality. 

The University prize and a number of other prizes will be specified in the annual catalogue. Students desiring information, and the 
annual catalogue, will be careful to give full address and direct their letters to
